In August 1906, Coolidge rented half of the double house at 21 Massasoit Street in Northampton, Massachusetts. On September 7, 1906, the Coolidges' first son, John (1906-2000), was born at home.

Harding as their presidential candidate. Massachusetts Governor Coolidge was then nominated for Vice President. Lightly creased and soiled. Fine condition.
