Photographs from the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool
A brief history:
- The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool is a spectacular long and rectangular man-made pool located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C and is one of the signature (postage stamp) views
for tourists & locals alike to take in.
- The Reflecting Pool was designed by Henry Bacon after the Lincoln Memorial was dedicated in 1922 as an equal counterpart to the Lincoln Memorial, giving the city of Washington a grand focal point
between the Lincoln Memorial on the western side of the National Mall & the Washington Monument on the eastern side.
- The Reflecting Pool is lined on it's north & south by walking paths and shady trees, creating a grand urban tree-lined boulevard and somewhat of Pierre Charles L'Enfant's original plan for
the new city.
