A postcard of the Tennessee State Capitol and landscaped grounds along the hillside overlooking the city of Nashville, bordered by Charlotte and Sixth Avenue. The architectural idea is that of a Greek Ionic Temple. The Greek Revival building is made entirely of Tennessee material, and is fireproof. It was designed by Philadelphia architect William Strickland and constructed over a period of ten years from 1845 to 1855. The architect died a year before the building's completion and is entombed in its northeast wall. This postcard is embossed and embellished with gold leafing. Forms part of the Nashville Room Postcard Collection. 1 postcard : col. ; 3.5 x 5.5 in.
