It’s inauguration time again!
To celebrate the re-launch of our site we highlight the first ever motion picture film with sound of a Presidential Inauguration. The year is 1933 and the President who will take the Oath of Office is Franklin D. Roosevelt, our 32nd President. The enthusiasm of the day, witnessed by some 250,000 people, is captured. Before the days of television, film highlights were rushed to New York City for broadcast. Watch the film that citizens watched that day. See the historic ride down Pennsylvania Avenue. Listen to excerpts of President Roosevelt’s historic speech. And if you would like to download a high definition file, it’s available for purchase!
