Easter Egg Rolling at the White House - Children Clamor for Eggs

In this photograph taken on April 1, 1929 by Herbert E. French of the National Photo Company, a group of children scramble for eggs during the White House Easter Egg Roll. Dating back to 1878, the Easter Egg Roll is a cherished springtime tradition in Washington, D.C., with children and their families gathering to enjoy festivities on the South Lawn. This photograph is from the Herbert E. French Collection at the Library of Congress, which captured life in Washington, D.C., from the Wilson to the Hoover administrations.
