Here is a lavishly illustrated tour of Washington's extraordinaril varied architecture, from the austere yet homey Lindens, the oldest house in the city (moved brick by brick from Pennsylvania), to the indonesian Embassy, with its dazzling fin de siecle staircase, to the White House, whose recently redecorated rooms are shown. The entertaining text, rich in historical facts and anecdotes, traces the development of the city from Colonial times to the present. Includes an Index.
