Description

Front view of the Alabama state capitol. Text on verso reads: "Alabama's State Capitol in Montgomery has been the seat of the state government for over one hundred years. In the present House of Representatives chamber, the Ordinance of Secession was passed in 1860, and the capitol became the official home of the Confederate government until it was later moved to Richmond. The central section has an enormous 97-foot dome, and on each side of the main entrance a spiral cantilever stairway winds to the third floor."
