Circa 1867, this print is as rare as it is majestic. An iconic view of the original U.S. Capitol building is shown from the western perspective and is replete with pedestrians dressed in period dress in the foreground. Notably, this magnificent engraving resides in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.
A bust portrait of George Washington - in right profile on a medallion - appears at the bottom center. Engraved and published by Alfred Jones (American, 1819-1900) of New York City. Printed by Burton & Co.
Handsomely matted and framed.
Dimensions: 24” (H) x 27" (L)
