Roy's Postcards: 1984/10/27


I bought this postcard because it shows the layout of the Capitol Mall, quite distorted in the distance -- at least 1 1/2 miles from Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol. I walk[ed] up and back - visiting the Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and several museums en route - and getting quite sore feet.

Were they not selling maps?
