Inscription.  Here is an elegant George Washington trotting on his handsome horse. Our first president never lived in the city that bears his name, but in the late 1700s you might have glimpsed Washington riding along the Post Road, a highway that connected important fledgling East Coast cities. A portion of that road is now Florida Avenue. Washington might have been on his way home to Mount Vernon from Philadelphia, then the nation's capital. The Capitol can be seen under construction in the distance.

About the artist: Peter Waddell, artist, specializes in images of the 18th and 19th century Washington.
