White House

Last week I featured a postcard from the state of Washington. this week we have the city of Washington - specifically the White House which suffered the ignominy of being burned by the British during the War of 1812 on October 29th, 1814.

the second card is from the early 1920s and shows the North Portico, built in 1829, the top card from the 1960s shows the South Portico, built in 1824.


  1. As a teen, I spent my summers outside DC and spent a lot of time running around the city.

    1. that must have been very different from where you're 'running around' now!

  2. Great historic views of this iconic building.

  3. Perhaps one of these days I\ll get to Washington, there certainly is lots there to be seen and enjoyed.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
