Description

President Theodore Roosevelt giving speech from Bangor House balcony on August 27, 1902. Flavius O. Beal, former mayor of Bangor, is belived to be the man standing on the balcony behind Roosevelt. While in Bangor, the President hoped to met up with his long-time friend and mentor, Maine Guide William Wingate Sewall. The President is quoted that day from the balcony as saying, "Is Bill Sewall in town? Has anyone seen him?" The men, in fact did reconnect in Bangor that day. For much more about Roosevelt's visit to Maine and his relationship to Sewall, give a read to Becoming Teddy Roosevelt by Andrew Vietze.

[Pictured in the foreground is probably not an out-of-focus cat head, though that's what it looks like].
