There's so much to say about this photographic poster by Jerome Liebling shot in 1958. It's an important work; prints of the photo are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian's National Portaint Gallery. And why not? It's a striking, strong image of two figures who later played large on the national political stage. Liebling always identified it as one of his favorite images and his 2011 obit tells a fascinating story of how this poster came to be. Ten years after he shot it, his anti-war tendencies made him less than thrilled with the likelihood that HH would lead the ticket at the wildly tumultuous 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. He quickly printed posters and took them to Chicago where he handed them out; this is one of them. It's hard to read the political button HH is wearing. There was a gubernatorial election in November of '58 but it doesn't look like it reads MacKinnon. Sharper or more politically astute eyes may be able to figure it out. In any event, the poster is in nice condition. As seen, there is a water spot on the left edge. Also some water spots on the back that, because of the crowd scene, don't show on the front; see the last two photos.
