NOAA Photo Library Image - cgs00738

Engraving of George Washington's National Monument by Albert Boschke of the Coast Survey. This apparently was the envisioned version of the Washington Monument as the monument was not dedicated until 1885 and the base area has never looked like the view produced by Boschke.
