Main Floor of the Executive Mansion

This is a cyanotype reproduction of a plan for the State Floor of the White House produced by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Johnston, one of the first prominent female photographers, specialized both in portrait and architectural photography. Between the 1880s and 1910s, she spent a great deal of time documenting the architecture and inhabitants of the White House.
