Isometrical View of the White House

Isometrical view of the Presidents House, the surrounding public buildings, and private residences - 1984 (LIbrary of Congress)

This is a cool drawing that we found in the Library of Congressarchives. 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.
