Roy's Postcards: 1983/11/05

Inscription:

Walking to and from the Lincoln Memorial, I saw the Jefferson Memorial. Beautiful and imposing - an impressive sight.

Postcard back:

Jefferson Memorial, designed by John Russel Pope, was dedicated in 1943. The circular, colonaded monument reflects Jefferson's own taste in architecture, and its domed profile bears a striking resemblance to that of Monticello, Jefferson's home in Virginia.

Leonard's comments:

We've got a bunch of photos of the Jefferson Memorial already so I thought I'd spruce this one up by presenting it in the orientation it was scanned in.
