Warren G. Harding sure didn’t look like a friendly guy. In just about every photograph I see of him, he looks like he’s scowling. I dug through some Library of Congress photos and wanted to share a few of them with you. Take a look at the slide show below.

The horse photo is particularly interesting to me. Can you imagine the president and just one person riding around town and into Rock Creek. Things were a little different back then.
