The observation deck of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument reopened this weekend, so let’s revisit this postcard from August 1906. If you can’t read the scrawling across the bottom it says “W.H.C. arrived all ok at 10:30. Took the Monument, Capitol and P.O. this P.M.” I think the author meant “took in” or else he had the good sense to put them all right back where he found them!

We all know that the view has changed substantially in the last 103 years.

When did you last visit and which side has your favorite view?
