A brief history of the Potomac River Tidal Basin to go alongside my Stock Photography
- The Tidal Basin (Potomac River Tidal Basin) is a man-made inlet located in West Potomac Park next to the Potomac River and Washington Channel, it was built
in 1897 to catch overflow from the Potomac & prevent flooding.
- The banks of the Tidal Basin are lined with the famed "cherry blossom" trees given as a gift from the Japanese government.
