IRON MOUNTAIN - A photograph taken in downtown Iron Mountain of Mitt Romney greeting supporters of his mother's 1970 U.S. Senate campaign is featured in this week's issue of Time magazine.
The photograph (on page 29) is part of a June 4 cover story on the political lessons learned by Romney, then 23, during Lenore Romney's unsuccessful Senate bid in Michigan. Taken in August 1970, it shows the historical Dickinson Inn in the background.
Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, has clinched the Republican nomination for president.
The photographs for the Time story were shot by Douglas Gilbert, who accompanied the Romneys for three days during the summer of 1970. Gilbert was photographing Lenore Romney's campaign for Look Magazine.
The Iron Mountain photo in this week's issue of Time was previously unpublished, according to Time's Elizabeth Dias.
About a dozen additional photos have been posted at lightbox.time.com/2012/05/24/historic-photographs-of-lenore-romney-and-mitt/
One photo shows Mitt and Lenore Romney crossing B Street at Stephenson Avenue in downtown Iron Mountain, joined by unidentified young supporters decorated in Lenore headbands and sashes. That photograph ran with LOOK's 1970 story, according to Dias.
