United Kingdom and Ireland in The White House-Photo 4

This photograph by Bruce White shows the basement entrance on the north side of the White House with surviving marks from the burning of the White House in 1814. Situated beneath the raised platform that supports the main entrance, this basement doorway includes Collen Williamson's original flanking rustication around the door and keystone. This design feature was widely popular in the 18th Century.
