WHHA is excited to bring you historic images of the White House through Flickr. Over the coming year, we will be sharing images taken by National Geographic photographers on assigment at the White House. Some have appeared in The White House Guidebook and The Living White House, but many have never been published before.
For our first photo set, we bring you images taken by Joseph Scherscel in winter of 1966. A late January blizzard blanketed Washington, D.C. with nearly twenty inches of snow, and Scherschel took the opportunity to catch the beauty of the White House and its snowy surroundings against a clear blue sky. View images from the 1966 blizzard, and subscribe to our flickr feed to keep up with future photo uploads.
