Solarium Being Refurnished, Harry S. Truman Administration

This black and white photograph of the Solarium by Abbie Rowe was taken in 1951 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 Solarium in the final stages of its redecoration after the Truman renovation, with designers and workers making finishing touches.
