Herbert Hoover's Roller Party!
This picture of President Hoover and his wife was taken in the spring of 1929. In view of the date and spring-like background, it's easy to conclude that this was snapped during the traditional President Elect roller skating party which happens in the spring of the President's first year.
You can tell Mrs. Hoover wishes she had some roller skates on. She's pointing her toe out like, "Ouch these shoes are too pointy give me some skates I want to TWIRL. "
Too bad Mrs. Hoover, Presidents only.
