I try not to post too many urban decay pics here (and there’s a lot of out there) but this photographer has some great documentary type shots. Also  if you search for pics of Art Deco Gary, this sort of thing is actually well-preserved as far as things go.

Roosevelt was born Jan. 30, 1882.
pastperfect-online:

Happy belated birthday, FDR! Yesterday marked the 32nd President’s 131st birthday. The four-term P.O.T.U.S. is best known for his New Deal plan during the Great Depression and his leadership during World War II. Despite losing the use of his legs at age 39 after a battle with Polio, Roosevelt is remembered for his sense of humor and optimism.  
This Roosevelt campaign poster from 1936 can be found in the online collection of the Kentucky Historical Society.
