We’re on a roll here with these photos, especially with ones of the White House. Here’s one of a concert given by the United States Marine Corps Band on the South Lawn. The photo was taken on July 16th, 1921.

Now, here’s a photo of a more contemporary concert on the White House South Lawn. This is a view of the lawn as the Foo Fighters played the July 4th, 2009 celebration.
