Standing Bearer

Thomas D McAvoy, courtesy of Life Magazine (or is it the other way round?) provided the London magazine Modern Photography of 1939/40 with this pic of POTUS F D Roosevelt standing, somewhat uncomfortably it seems, at the top of a flight of stairs. The shadow behind him (caused -  I imagine - by camera flash) has him almost indistinguishable from a cardboard model.
