Mr. Truman's Renovation: Cracked Support Beam

This photograph, taken March 7, 1950, shows the cracked wooden support beam that had been underneath Margaret Trumans sitting room on the second floor. Her piano broke through the floor in 1948, after which steel supports were added to reinforce the weakened beam.
