Washington, D.C.: A Photographic Tourby Carol M. Highsmith
Spanning the Potomac in majestic fashion, the city fans out gracefully, offering a multitude of pleasures to the more than twenty million tourists who visit
Carved out of some of the thickest woods and foulest swamps at the close of the eighteenth century, the glorious city of Washington D.C. is among America's most stately, most beautiful, and most impressive.
Spanning the Potomac in majestic fashion, the city fans out gracefully, offering a multitude of pleasures to the more than twenty million tourists who visit annually. These pages explore official Washington: the imposing Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the White House, the Capitol, and the soaring obelisk of the Washington Monument; along with its lush public parks and gardens, beautiful buildings, and historic sites. From the charm of its celebrated Cherry Blossom Festival to the somber beauty of the Vietnam Wall, Washington, D.C.: A Photographic Tour captures this historic city memorably and is an evocative portrait of the grandeur of the nation's capital.
