The First Photographs of US Presidents

President James Polk. One of our best. At the beginning of his term he announced he would not seek re-election. He got it done and went home. Only two other Presidents have ever done this.

Andrew Jackson (15/3/1767 - 8/6/1845) was the 7th President of the United States (4/3/1829 - 4/3/1837)

Grover Cleveland (18/3/1837 - 24/6/1908) was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States (4/3/1885 - 4/3/1889 and 4/3/1893 - 4/3/1897)
