"In this nation, I see tens of millions of its citizens . . . who at this very moment are denied the greater part of what the very lowest standards of living today call the necessities of life. . . . It is not in despair that I paint you that picture. I paint it for you in hope-because the Nation, seeing and understanding the injustice of it, proposes to paint it out." Thus Franklin Delano Roosevelt renewed his commitment to the New Deal policies he had established during his first term. New York Daily News photographers Harry Warnecke and Robert Cranston pictured Roosevelt-together with members of his family, his cabinet, and the Supreme Court-on the East Portico of the Capitol delivering his second inaugural address. The presidential seal has been draped in canvas to protect it from the cold rain that fell that day.
