029_Railroad Tracks

Description

The railroad tracks in the foreground south of the Capitol used to carry passenger trains and those passing by could look up the hill for a glimpse of the Capitol. It was a very rundown area at the time. Plans were being made to buy the areas around the Capitol and to improve the grounds.
