Livery at the White House; White House History (Number 32) - Photo 1

Britain’s Puck magazine featured this cover on the September 26, 1906 issue, three years after the Theodore Roosevelt administration introduced a controversial new usher’s uniform. It reflects what became a lasting public perception that an ostentatious Theodore Roosevelt administration had done away with the republican simplicity at the White House.
