That booth, the one where you could get a front page of the New York Herald Tribune on the day you were born, we stopped there.  My sister and I had our birthdates printed.  The front pages were rolled and sipped into a plastic tube.  Fifty two years later, I still have mine.  And I remember that booth.  Thank you for posting this shot and sparking a memory.

Interesting factoid:  The photograph LBJ is signing is of his swearing in aboard Air Force 1 in November 1963.
