Franklin D Roosevelt Tin Metal Tray Vintage Fdr President Georgia Souvenir:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Souvenir Tin Tray
A great item for collectors of presidential memorabilia!
This is a vintage souvenir
tin tray featuring Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Little White House in its center
Little White House. The surrounding tray is black with gold trim. I have only
seen one other like this one, and the only others I have seen of this were
campaign trays for the first FDR election. It measures 6 3/4" length and 4
3/4" width. Along the bottom edge is the inscription, “Roosevelt’s Little
White House, Warm Springs, Ga.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt built the Little White House in 1932 while governor of New York, prior to being inaugurated as president in 1933. He first came to Warm Springs in 1924 hoping to find a cure for his polio. During FDR’s presidency and the Great Depression, he developed many New Deal Programs (such as the Rural Electrification Administration) based upon his experiences in this small town.
