Washington in the sixties
A horse drawn cannon and caisson stand on a dirt road in front of a two story wood frame house. A man stands close by the cannon. A ramshackle picket fence surrounds the house. A three-story bird hourse is built on the fence. In the background is a river and the City of Washington, D. C. to the left of the house a wooden bridge crosses the river. Three men stand in front of the bridge. Other men and a rider are on the bridge. Matthew Brady's studio took this photo during the Civil War.
