Louisiana State Capitol

This view of the Capitol shows the Lady of the Lake, lake situated at the back.
Important facts are: Cost of Capitol $5,000,000. It is 34 stories high or 450 feet. Today it is considered the finest capitol building in the United States.

February 8, 1951
Natchez, Mississippi

Dear Sister & Frances
"Saw the Capitol of Louisiana went through & looked the city over from the top all around swell view."
Lots of love to all L.T.G.

The artists in these old linen cards were often very creative with color. I see no evidence of red stone in the actual building. It's still a magnificent structure though.
