Washington Monument 1911 Photo Plate

Thats really DC 100 years ago?

Wow! There is nothing there but the Tiber Creek swamp. From what I understand, the Tiber Creek still exists but is now buried in a mysterious underground sewer system beneath the city.

Aerial View of the Washington Monument.

Why not turn it into a sundial

The circle around the monument could be easily marked with time of day indicators. I don't think that General George Washington's memorial needs a sun dial, but it sure would be easy to do.

Frozen Potomac River

To the right of the Francis Scott Key Bridge you can just see the Georgetown University in the hills above the bridge. On the left side of the bridge, is Crystal City Virginia.

View of the South Portico of the White House Building taken from observation floor of the Washington Monument.

I saw a dog house fashioned to look just like the White House once. I wonder if anyone has made a copy of this building for themselves anywhere. It could be scaled down to average mansion size, yet maintain a nearly duplicate appearance.

Spectacular Winter in DC

Wow! When was this picture taken? Is this the storm of 2010?

East view of George Washington National Monument

I need Masonic anything.

I know GW was a Mason, and I know the Washington Monument has Masonic undertones, but does anyone know where I can obtain a Masonic-flavored keepsake? My grandfather was a free-mason and I want to give him a DC themed gift. Thanks in advance.

United States National Flag waves in tribute to George Washington.

Where can you get and official US flag?

Do they sell flags at the Washington Monument Gift Shop? I want an American Made official size US flag.

A West view of the Lincoln Memorial from the base of the Washington Monument.

Mystery in DC

Where is everybody? And how in the world are those flags flying in opposite directions at the same time?

Pyramidion at top of the obelisk weighs 172 tons.

Thirteen for a reason.

"Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea." (Bullinger, E.W. Number in Scripture, Kregel Publications, (c)1967, p. 205).

Was not the founding of America in REBELLION of England?

In the Nation's Capitol the father of "ONE nation under God," George Washington, is memorialized in the rotunda ceiling on a http://dcpages.com/gallery/US-Capitol-Visitor-Center/DSC00413.jpg.html mural entitled, The Apotheosis of Washington. The mural pictures the nations first father surrounded by 13 maidens.

Ten days after President Washington's death in 1799 a Congressional committee recommended a monument be built to honor our Nation's first President.

What would a building like this be good for?

It is like an office building without any usable square footage, with a top floor observation area. It looks like a lookout tower to me. Why else would this structure have been designed? Perhaps, merely for symbolic reasons. It looks just like the Egyptian Obelisks that were erected in honor of Pharaohs and later moved to their conqueror's homeland as a symbol of power.
