According to Shirley Temple's Own Autobiography, entitled "Childs' Star" (1988), Miss Temple Indicates that the below Photograph was Taken as the she and The First Lady were sitting together, during the Special Viewing of her Latest (1938) Film, "Little Miss Broadway". Thoughtfully, Shirley Temple later inscribed this appealing piece, "To Mrs. Roosevelt - Love from your friend - Shirley Temple".

"TO MRS. ROOSEVELT, LOVE FROM YOUR FRIEND,
SHIRLEY TEMPLE"
Following the receipt, from Shirley Temple, of this personally autographed piece, Mrs. Roosevelt had it promptly framed and displayed within The White House. Later the simple black frame was removed and it was re-framed with purple suede matting and a stunning ornate gilt frame.  Now, this same spectacular piece is in The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection, although in the near future it may be shared with an institution or another noted collector.
