Robert Frost with a birthday cake

The poet Robert Frost poses with a rather flowery cake on his 85th birthday in 1959. Frost was born in 1874 in San Francisco, California. This photo was taken by Walter Albertin for the New York World-Telegram and Sun; the photo is now part of the collections of the U.S. Library of Congress.
