  • Workers Repaint Ground Floor Corridor, Kennedy Administration

    Ground Floor Corridor
    Ground Floor
    construction & maintenance
    In this photograph by Robert L. Knudsen, workers repaint the Ground Floor Corridor on September 13, 1961. The painting was part of the refurbishment and restoration of the White House under the guidance of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Like the Cross Hall connecting the rooms on the State Floor above, the Ground Floor Corridor provides access to the rooms on the lower level of the Executive Mansion, including the Diplomatic Reception Room, the China Room, the Vermeil Room, the Map Room, and the Library. Stretching between the East Wing and the West Wing, the Ground Floor Corridor was originally a dimly lit basement hallway, and the rooms along the corridor were service spaces. The arched ceiling vaults were intended to support the State Floor above, although they are now mainly decorative. During President Theodore Roosevelt's presidency, this hallway was transformed into a space for displaying artwork and china.

    President's Dining Room
    This photograph of the President's Dining Room was taken in August 1975 by Joseph H. Bailey and Nelson Brown during the administration of Gerald R. Ford. The President's Dining Room is located on the Second Floor of the Executive Mansion in the northwest corner. The President's Dining Room was originally a bedroom referred to as the Prince of Wales Room after the 1860 visit of Edward Albert, Queen Victoria's son who would later become King Edward VII. It was not until the John F. Kennedy administration that the room became the President's Dining Room and main eating room for the First Family. In 1975, First Lady Betty Ford redecorated the walls of the room, replacing a Zuber & Cie wallpaper depicting scenes from the American Revolution and natural landmarks, with simple yellow paint. In this photograph, an unidentified member of the White House staff lights a candle on the table.
