It all looks like fun and games, but when Bush I took Clinton out in the speedboat, Clinton almost peed. Bush is a speed demon.

It’s also worth noting that this image was made from two other photos.

Snapshot of the First Official Conference at Washington Since Their Election Between the President and Vice-President-Elect. 
World interest in the first twentieth century heads of the United States government grows daily. Here is the latest snapshot of President McKinley and Vice-President-Elect Roosevelt, taken with a background of late autumn leaves containing no suggestion of sadness for their joint future of brilliant promise.
The article is undated, but the description of Theodore Roosevelt as “Vice-President Elect” means the picture was taken after the November 6 election in 1900 and before the inauguration, President Mckinley’s second. (Garret Hobart, Vice President during McKinley’s first term, died in office in 1899). The inauguration took place March 4, 1901. McKinley would be assassinated in September of that same year.The New York Public Library Digital Gallery

Inaugural Love
When President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Vice President Richard Nixon were inaugurated in 1957, photographers captured an image of them on the Inaugural Parade viewing stand with the President’s grandchildren, Anne and David Eisenhower, and the VP’s daughters, Julie and Tricia Nixon.
David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon Eisenhower are now married, and in the most recent book that they co-authored, they recall that the event may have been the start of their lifelong romance. 
David Eisenhower writes in “Going Home to Glory” that in one version of “the resulting photograph, I am staring intently at Julie and she is looking at me.”
