Original Solarium, Harry S. Truman Administration

This black and white photograph of the Solarium by Abbie Rowe was taken in 1948 during the Harry S. Truman administration. The Solarium is a private, Third Floor room used by the First Family to rest, relax, and step away from the pressures of life in the White House. This photograph captures the original Solarium right before it went under construction during the Truman renovation.
