Herbert Hoover's Inaugural Ball 1929

The interior view of the Washington auditorium at 19th Street and New York Avenue shows a large crowd at President Herbert Hoover's inaugural ball on March 4, 1929. The growing popularity f celebratory events surrounding the inaugural and the presidency itself necessitated multiple balls around the city to accommodate the crowds. Even so, space is at a premium for Hoover as crowds dance and move about while he and his guests watch from a balcony at the back of the auditorium.
