Oval Office During FDR Administration

Created c. 1940.

The Oval Office during the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. After Roosevelt expanded the West Wing, the Oval Office overlooked the Rose Garden and contained a porch. In this photograph the president's desk has been moved away from the window, possible a security measure during World War II. The animal skin rug is a noticeable addition by Roosevelt.
