President Taft’s Snowy Inauguration in 1909
Complaining about our bizarre weather? Try having your Presidential Inauguration in crappy, snowy weather. That’s what happened to our most rotund president (and latest Nats racing president).
Here is a photograph of him in the carriage with Teddy Roosevelt en route to the Capitol and his swearing in.
And below are a few more photographs from that day, courtesy of the Library of Congress.
