Adding images of individuals
Over the last 3 years images featuring individuals have been added to the White House room articles. The room articles are primarily about the architecture and decorative arts of these rooms. While some text describing historic events that have happened in a particular room are important, if the event is significant enough to have its own article (Partial Test Ban Treaty) the photograph is more appropriately placed there with a link in the article to the White House room article.
There are an abundant number of photographs showing the rooms without people, where the focus is on the architecture and decorative arts. The emphasis in adding a photograph is to illustrate the room and its furnishings, not an individual. If you must add images of people, please add them in the gallery feature. CApitol3 (talk)
