You look at this picture of Lyndon B. Johnson and his family watching the 1968 Democratic Convention proceedings on TV and wonder how they ever agreed to have it taken much less published. This may be one of those pictures which was never meant to see the public light of day but it's fascinating. I just keep looking and looking at it.
I have no idea who took it, probably the White House official photographer or maybe another family member. At that time LBJ had decided not to run for re-election after living through the chaos of the Vietnam and peace protests but he was probably interested in just who the candidate for the dems would be. It was Hubert Humphrey and Nixon was the GOP candidate year and eventually won.
