The Capitol Building first thing in the morning as they wash the steps. To the far right there is a man protesting. (I will have a close up of this man on my USA page later on.)
It was 1792 when a design competition for the U.S. Capitol Buliding was held. The Ground Breaking Ceremony took place September 18, 1793. Through many years and several Architect changes, the Senate wing was finished by1800 but the House wing wasn't completed until eleven years later. Though the House of Representatives moved in by 1807, the House wing was not completed until 1811.
