Frank still in the Warehouse

The then (two years ago) Interim Director of the Idaho State Historical Society, Keith Petersen, holds up a portrait of Former Gov. Frank Steunenberg in the Idaho State Historical museum's warehouse on Jan. 29, 2007. The portrait was removed from the statehouse in preparation for the capitol restoration. Frank is still waiting in the warehouse but hopes to make his escape sometime in 2010.

See the following post for a picture showing where this portrait hung in the capitol before the start of the current restoration project. "Frank Watching Over the Capital Restoration."
