Amazing Old Photo of Capitol Dome Construction in 1858
I came across this gem scanning through the Architect of the Capitol’s website. I had to share it with you tonight. Click on it for the higher resolution image. It’s pretty amazing to take a look at the details and the stores on the left, lining Pennsylvania Ave before the Civil War.
Try and stay cool. It’s ridiculously hot outside.
