This image of the US Capitol Building is from the 1850s as new construction began, when it still held the Charles Bulfinch dome. Bulfinch was the third architect of the Capitol Building. His plans increased the dome's height, which he said was at the insistence of the president and Congress. The double-dome structure included a stone, brick and wooden interior dome rising 96 feet and a copper-covered wooden exterior dome rising 140 feet. Bulfinch completed the project in 1823.
All images reproduced on embossed canvas mounted to either 3/16” or 1/2” Ultra Board.
