Indiana and the White House - Photo 5

This photograph, taken by Theodor Horydczak in the fall of 1935, shows the West Wing after President Franklin Roosevelt ordered a major renovation of the executive offices. Architect Eric Gugler expanded the second story, excavated and constructed a basement level of additional office space, and moved the Oval Office to the southeast corner where it remains today.
