The group is posed in an elaborate interior (probably at the White House), with chandelier, crown moldings and, on the wall, gilt framed portraits of Presidents, including Jefferson. RARE; according to Americn Book Prices Current, this is the only Harrison signed photograph with cabinet to appear at auction saince at least 1970.
