Original caption:8/12/1933-White Top Mountain, Virginia- Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt is shown with the group of Virginia "Ridge Runners" who entertained her. This community was once the home of the late Elliot Roosevelt, father of Mrs. Roosevelt, and it was his wish that sometime during her life, his famous daughter should meet his Virginia mountain friends. The First Lady was entertained by crack mountain singers and players, and was shown sights that interested her father.
