Indiana State Capitol Building, Indianapolis: exterior perspective and plan

Town & Davis
NOTES: As a result of a competition in 1831 Town & Davis designed the 3rd state capitol building of Indiana. The building experienced structural problems in the 1860s and was finally demolished in 1877, to be replaced by the current state capitol building.

United States Capitol, Washington, D.C.: exterior perspective from the north-east

Bulfinch, Charles (1763-1844)
NOTES: This print shows the United States Capitol building following what was thought to have been its completion in 1829 when Charles Bulfinch completed the structure begun by Latrobe and left incomplete in 1817. It was only in 1851 that Thomas Ustick Walter began the large-scale extensions, including the new dome, completed in 1866 which created the building as is known today. The print must date from the early 1830s as the printers Childs & Inman were in existence from 1830 to 1833 and the publishers Thompson & Homans also only seemed to be recorded in the early 1830s.

United States Capitol, Washington, D.C.: Hall of the House of Representatives

Bulfinch, Charles (1763-1844)
NOTES: This image shows the third site of the House of Representatives. After a temporary building, the first permanent Hall, designed by Latrobe, was completed in 1807 but destroyed in 1814 when the Capitol was burned during the War of 1812. The Hall was rebuilt as seen here between 1815 and 1819, begun by Latrobe and completed by Bulfinch. The acoustics proved troublesome and eventually the House of Representatives moved into its present quarters in 1857. Today this is the National Statuary Hall (or Old Hall of the House) and displays statues of prominent Americans.
