Folder Description
This photograph album, compiled by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, contains photographs from 1938 and 1939 that document Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr.’s tenure as United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom. An original typed inscription taped on the front pastedown reads, "I should appreciate it if no one remove pictures from this book. If you do so, it will not be so interesting for other people. Personally, I should like to keep all the pictures to look at myself, because as you know we lost all the moving pictures of you children. Many of these pictures have been lost in the past, due to the clamor of newspapermen, so please do not remove any more. Thank you. Rose Kennedy." An original handwritten note in blue ink taped on the front free endpaper reads, "Joe + some photos in American Embassy London 1938-9." The verso of the note includes a handwritten inscription in red pencil that is mostly illegible but appears to be a reflection on faith. Photographs capture Ambassador Kennedy and other members of the Embassy staff posing in their offices; exterior and interior views of the Embassy building in Grosvenor Square and the Ambassador's residence at 14 Prince's Gate, both in London, England; Ambassador Kennedy and Rose dressed in evening clothes on the occasion of a State banquet honoring King Carol II of Romania; Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., reading a book to his younger brother, Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, who is sitting in his lap; and Ted being served dinner in the dining room of the Ambassador's residence. Also featured in several photographs is Ambassador Kennedy’s secretary and friend, Edward E. Moore. This photograph album contains 26 photographic prints.
