When I noticed this photograph, one word immediately came to my mind. America. I chose this because it is extremely American. Not only is it TR, but a massive crowd of Americans coming out to see their commander-in-chief speak. It may appear somewhat unclear, but almost every head is turned towards the late President in this picture, except one. There is a man with a top hat on sitting to Teddy’s right, staring at the ground. I think this man sort of captures the popular style of the early 1900s. I understand that top hats were quite popular for men at the time (1903). Why does he stare at the ground though? Maybe he is part of Roosevelt’s cabinet, had a long train ride to Oakland, California and is out of it. We all know that feeling. Maybe the shot was taken as top hat man was coincidentally looking at the ground. We all know that feeling. Lastly, the three heads in the left corner. They are definitely captivated by what TR is saying. I think this captures the essence of how much America loved this person and how much we still do, for the most part, today.
