Description

Tourists visiting the White House in Washington D.C. photographed by Chet Smolski in the mid-1980s. Until the early twentieth century, The White House was open to the public, but has since been restricted due to security concerns. However, free and public tours of the house, a tradition started by Thomas Jefferson, continue to the present in times of peace.
