Remmy’s trip to the nation’s capital was a great experience. Here are some of the sights of the period.
Pennsylvania Ave about 1886.
Notice the street cars are horse-drawn.
This view was painted before the Civil War and the addition of the new dome. Notice the water canal running close to the capitol building.
By contrast, this 1892 view shows the river frontage, much of which was filled in for the Lincoln Memorial and other works.
The Mall has changed.
The Nationals making a play at first base. The camera is looking out to center field and the Capitol building.
