A memento of the 1936 Democratic Convention for the re-election of Franklin Roosevelt.

Here is a ticket for the 1936 Democratic Presidential Convention. This was the convention in which the incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was renominated to run for re-election.

The next story that follows this one on the blog, deals with the Republican candidate who was slated to defeat Roosevelt since the Literary Digest had said so.

But this is before that all took place. But this is one of the rare tickets from that convention in Philadelphia, that are still in existence.
