Monumental


[Image: "Historical Monument of the American Republic" by Erastus Salisbury Field]. I just spent far too much time clicking around on Archi/Maps, where—amongst dozens of other images—this painting by Erastus Salisbury Field, showing a proposal for an "Historical Monument of the American Republic," seemed worth a quick post.
