An Original Vintage Linenbacked Political Campaign Poster (measures 16" x 22 1/4" [41 x 57 cm]) (Learn More)

Herbert Hoover was President of the United States from 1929 to 1933. The Great Depression struck during his term and his inability to end the downward economic spiral lead to his defeat in the next election, even though many scholars do not fault him for causing the Depression, because the root causes of it began during Calvin Coolidge's term. However, many in the country DID fault Hoover for the Depression while it was going on, and the large groups of homeless people lived in shanty towns that were known as "Hoovervilles". The Hoover Dam was named in his honor. He passed away in 1964 at the age of 90.
Artist: Louis Fabian Bachrach Sr.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster is from when Hoover was running for re-election in 1932, which clearly was an incredibly uphill battle given that he had presided over the country when it entered the Great Depression (and of course, he lost the election to FDR, who promised a "New Deal"). The photo was taken by Louis Fabian Bachrach Sr., who solely put "BACHRACH" in the lower right corner of the photo (Bachrach's father had been a famous photographer who photographed Abraham Lincoln, and the family studio continued over 100 years, with Louis Fabian Bachrach Jr. continuing to photograph presidents and other famous politicians).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster was folded across the middle and it had an extra fold near to the regular one, with some creases, small tears, and tiny paper loss in that area. It had pinholes, tears, and smudges around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
