'Public Buildings in Washington', 1874. Creator: John Filmer

'Public Buildings in Washington', 1874. 'Treasury Department; White House Front View; Smithsonian Institute; [Capitol Building], City Hall, White House Rear View; View from Agricultural Grounds', Washington DC, USA. 'The most striking object at Washington is undoubtedly the magnificent white-marble Capitol...It rises majestically far above all surrounding objects, amid a nest of thick and darkly verdant foliage, on the brow of the hill to which it gives its name; its very lofty dome, with its tiers of columns, its rich ornamentation, and its summit surmounted by the colossal statue of Liberty, presents a noble appearance, and may be seen for many miles around'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
