Sorry to have missed
the Tour - I hear it
was a great success.
Just now I am
visiting with John &
family.  Their yard
is so beautiful with
lilacs, dogwood, azaleas.
Will see Fran tomorrow

Since then (1920) the Capitol building has been renovated and those trees are gone, as well as most of the greenery in the foreground.  The building itself has the same look currently and the main walkway from the stairs leads to a street.

Nice postcard, @ShayP.  I see a mighty big church behind the capitol building.  Is that still there?

@Rikki Gins  Not a church.  It's actually 'The Old City Hall.'  It's still there but is a multi-purpose building now that still houses government offices, and I think, a library. (could be wrong) Since it was done in the "Gothic Style" it looks like a cathedral.  The new city hall was built across the street.
