Deutsch: Das Weiße Haus in Washingotn D.C. (Darstellung aus dem 19. Jahrhundert, aus der englischen Wikipedia kopiert)
English: mid 19th century engraving showing the White House at Washington, DC as seen from the South-West.
Date mid 19th century
Source Previously, but (as the above German description explains) in no way "originally", from de.wikipedia; description page used to be here. That, in turn, was from "der englischen Wikipedia", more specifically at en:Image:WhiteHouseEngraving.JPG, uploaded by Infrogmation 20:40, 7 November 2002. Infrogmation scanned it from a 19th century US cyclopedia in his own collection. (If you'd like to know more about that book, you should have asked Infrogmation ( talk) before Hurricane Katrina. Sorry. Maybe you'll find another original copy somewhere.)
