41st President. 10x 8 color photo of George and Barbara Bush with Congressman Dan Rostenkowski, inscribed in bottom margin, “To Danny – With a lot of happy memories and friendship, too – George Bush“ certainly as President.
A few light surface scuffs and crease. Image and inscription have faded a bit.
Amazing association autographed image.
