Entry Stairwell to Blair House
This photograph by Bruce White shows the entry stairwell to Blair House. The porch light is left on in the evenings to welcome the guests. Blair House is located across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House and is known as the President's Guest House. Visiting diplomats and dignitaries stay at Blair House while on official visits with the White House and is historically where the president-elect and first family reside prior to taking the oath of office.
