I took a little time finally and scanned an article from a 1902 issue of The Outlook magazine called “The White House – The Plans for Its Reconstruction” and also the recent Architectural Digest spread of the Bush 2 renovation. Look for those soon.
I also scanned the floor plan of 1 Observatory Circle (the VP residence) from American Monarchy; so I’ll create a mini-site for that soon, too.
UPDATE: 1902 article now available
Funny to see a picture to the south before the Jefferson Memorial was there.
I’d like to know what that black blob is on the South Lawn.
Great article. Thank you!
Have you posted anything yet on the Bush renovation? I’ve been eagerly looking for it.
Thanks! Love the site!
