Overview

Washington, D.C., proudly bears the name of our first president, who himself chose the city's site in 1785. The Revolutionary Fathers decided that the capital should be specially laid out instead of letting the city grow wild on its own. The task immediately fell to French engineer and architect Pierre Charles L'Enfant. His vision can still be clearly seen in the monumental center of Washington. This extraordinarily photographed book documents every quarter of the city and surrounding neighborhood. Full-color, aerial shots, commissioned specifically for this series, capture every monument, government building, museum, park, and avenue which gives Washington its world famous reputation.
