USA ~Washington, D.C.

Great view of the impressive Capitol building, one of the most symbolically important buildings in the world and a D.C.'s landmark...(USA-1548433). The sender wrote that it is much more impressive in person... but to me it looks already amazing on a postcard...:D:D Thanks Heather!

With nice stamps too!!

The United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., is a symbol of the American people and their government, the meeting place of the nation's legislature. The Capitol also houses an important collection of American art, and it is an architectural achievement in its own right. It is a working office building as well as a tourist attraction visited by millions every year.
From the back of the card:
The exquisite landscaping around the Capitol was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the creator of Central Park in New York. Many of the trees are so rare that they are marked with their names.
