View of Washington Monument (1922)
View of Washington Monument (May 5th, 1922)

Here is a nice photograph from 1922. You’re looking at the Washington Monument from within the Lincoln Memorial, which has just opened. The memorial has not yet been formally dedicated — a ceremony attended by Lincoln’s son.

Thanks Shorpy!
