Photos of modified bathroom, both before and after. In the top left corner, sits two photos of a bathroom door with a red arrow pointing from the left to the right. The door on the left is a smaller width with a round knob, and then door on the right is wider with long metal handle. The text below the images reads, 'Widened doorway for wheelchair access. Replaced doorknob with accessible handle,' Below the text, in the bottom left corner are two photos of a bathroom before modification. The images together show a crammed bathroom with a two foot tall bathtub next to a toilet that is pushed against a wall.
