Residence expansion

I’ve posted dozens of new photos in the past couple of days and created a number of new pages to flesh out the third floor of the Residence and the pre-Truman second floor. It took some noodling to figure out which room was which, since the Truman Library archives don’t have them clearly labeled, and I may have made some mistakes. I’ve learned that I can’t always even trust the Library of Congress on rooms or dates, so it’s a pretty tricky puzzle. It actually helps a lot to draw a schematic of the room from the photo, with the doors and windows and fireplace, and then to try to fit it to the floor plan just like a puzzle piece. But even then, some rooms, like the Master Dressing Room and the Queen’s Sitting Room, have identical layouts.
