Description: No. 61595. The Central Stair Hall (2nd floor), Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. leads either north or south to exhibitions of Manuscripts, rare volumes and art treasures that are priceless. In this great building is housed practically the entire record of man’s progress from the very beginning of art, science and literature. The structure itself which occupied twelve years in the building, represents the highest achievement in American Architecture.

This is one of my favorite places of all time. It’s beautiful and is full of books, what could be better!
Arrived home safe on time. Bud was at the train. Mae and Bert are here to night. Bert nearly beat me to pieces. I hope Mr. Moore got home safe. Will write later. Helen S.
