Herbert Hoover, the Republican presidential candidate in the 1928 election, is seen with Charles Curtis, his running mate.
The campaign required Curtis and Hoover to maintain an image of friendship. In reality, the two men were at such odds that they refused to pose together for a photograph.
The administration was forced to merge two separate images and paint in a hand to give the ilusion that the running mates were in harmony. The photo was revealed as a fake following the campaign.
