Isometrical View of the President’s House

This is a cool drawing that we found in the Library of Congress’ archives. It’s centered on the White House, showing the surrounding area around the 1850s (done in 1984). The bottom left side would be the Ellipse today and the top right is Lafayette Park.

    Interesting that the Treasury Building used to face the White House.
