Views from the Tall Tower

August 1, 2012 – Indefinitely

Smithsonian Castle
1000 Jefferson Drive, SW
Washington, DC

Location: East Corridor

In 1863, artist Titian Ramsey Peale took a series of 8 photographs from the roof of the Castle’s tall north tower that form a panoramic view of Washington. A corresponding set of 8 images, taken from the exact same vantage points in 2012, shows a much changed city.
