From a Flickr commenter:

I really appreciate the behind-the-scenes pictures. We hardly ever see photos of the White House staffers who keep things going – the butlers, secretaries, floor-polishers. Work is dignified and everybody who does work has dignity.

Publishing these photos means the White House believes that working people are important – not just top management, but the people who walk the dog, ice the cakes, and hand the President a face towel.
