5 ½ x 7 ½ in. Salt print on original mount with triple-rule printed border with printed caption "State Capitol---South View / Montpelier, Vt." Minor soiling but generally in very good condition with good contrast. The original Greek Classical Revival Vermont State House in Montpelier was built in 1836. The structure was gutted by fire in 1857, but the front portico survived. The present State House, designed by Thomas Silloway, was constructed on the same site in 1857-58. Silloway's splendid design replaced the old saucer-shaped dome with a tall gold dome supported by Ionic columns. This salt print photograph was taken around 1859 to commemorate the completion of the building. The foreground shows newly planted trees supported by white wooden frames.

The Chinese Recorder observed that the telegraph, "bringing into contact the most distant nations, marks an ... Read more
