Pres. Roosevelt is in an open touring car on Fountain St. in front of the Arlington Hotel. A crowd surrounds the car.

On June 10, 1936, President and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt visited Hot Springs National Park and toured the Fordyce Bathhouse as part of the Arkansas centennial celebration. FDR used the baths at Warm Springs, Georgia, on a regular basis to relieve his polio. He never bathed in Hot Springs.
