White House Extensions

Proposed Extensions to the White House by Robert Owen, 1891-1901

Robert Owen proposed to extend the White House by creating two replicas of the original structure, rotate them 90 degrees and place them on either side.

This was one of several designs in the late 19th century for expanding or relocating the Executive Mansion to provide more space for the growing government.

I’d opt to apply certain together with the content in my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide link with your web blog. Thank you sharing. best real estate agency manila
