This is one photo that would be so much better in color! In black and white it looks like someone’s extra family room with slip-covered old furniture, which maybe it was.
I think that’s exactly what it was Dennis. Let’s face it: for all her remarkable qualities, Eleanor Roosevelt was not exactly noted for her taste in interior decor.
BTW, the above comment is from me. I posted it anonymously by accident.
Upon close observation, it seems that the rug in the Eleanor Roosevelt West Sitting Hall is the same one as in the TR/McKim Green Room.
Now that you mention it Dennis, I believe you’re right.
