The consignor relates that the original owner of this grouping, Veva E. Milum, worked for Harris and Ewing, photographers in Washington, D.C. She was invited to attend the special breakfast honoring Lindbergh's return to the United States, but it is believed her group was caught in a traffic jam and either did not attend or arrived late. The lot is accompanied by written information regarding provenance associated with the signed photograph and related items.
All items are in very good condition; inked signature is strong and legible, photograph is very good to near excellent condition overall.
