The East Front. No date, but buggies are the only wheeled vehicles in the picture. The House chamber is on the left side; the Senate, on the right. Horatio Greenough’s statue of George Washington is visible near the center of the photo, partially obscured by trees; the statue was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1908.
