The Library of Congress in the Capitol – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

One of the great things about working on Capitol Hill is the fact that the Capitol Building is never far away.  This morning Tina and I went for a quick visit and came back with today’s Pic of the Week.  It’s a fantastic image, from one of the ceilings on the House side, of when the Library of Congress was in the Capitol between 1800 and 1897.

If you are curious to learn more, there’s a lot of information available online about the art and architecture of the Capitol.
