Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785822135, Hardcover)

This book tells the story of the city’s ascent; its people, great moments, and architecture. From early maps to superb photography of its most famous buildings, this book includes images that represent key points in the development of the city—the Capitol, the Mall, the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Institute, and the White House, as well as less well known fragments of the past, such as vintage photos of Victorian Georgetown, the Watergate complex, Fort McNair, and the National Arbotetum. Filled with evocative images and absorbing insight, this book presents three hundred years of excitement, evolution, and expansion.
