City in Time: Washington, D.C.by Samuel M. Caggiula, Beverley Brackett, Gilbert King (Photographer)
From the Capitol building, home to Congress, to the Gothic revival style Smithsonian Castle, Washington, D.C. is an intriguing city. It’s the home of countless historical sites, incredible architecture, and beautiful art and monuments. There’s something special to see at every turn, and this fascinating volume presents the very best, as it is now and as it was back then. Step into the Hirshhorn Museum, designed by architect Gordon Bunshaft to resemble “a large piece of functional sculpture.” Gaze at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. Visit D.C.’s spookiest places, including the perhaps haunted Hay-Adams Hotel. Every spread is both attractive and enlightening.
