Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself. – Mark Twain
Since Twain’s days and likely before Americans have been deriding their Congress. There is one aspect of Congress though that cannot be defamed and that is its library. Its Beaux Arts architecture is a beauty to behold. More beautiful than its building though is its catalog. Increasingly more and more of that catalog is available online. Above I have selected an assortment of photographs that are currently available online. I chose these from the library’s outermost veneer. These photos were selected from a collection of sets that the library has organized to draw in the American public. They range from the interesting to the iconic to the inspirational and they are free to all. Follow the link and learn, live and love the Library of Congress. You’ll see all these pictures and many more. Enjoy!
I would have sworn that the snowy one was from Kayak Woman, from snowy Saint Siberia a couple winters ago.
