High-Res View of Rockport Granite Fountains in D.C., 1917

Union Station Detail

Coincidentally, just a week after I posted an image of one of the two Rockport Granite fountains at Union Station in Washington, D.C., the blog Shorpy posted an amazingly detailed, high-resolution image showing both fountains and their placement in front of Union Station. What you see above is only a portion of the entire image posted on Shorpy. In it, you can clearly see the two fountains on opposite sides of the plaza. (Click the above image to enlarge.)

If you are not familiar with Shorpy, it is devoted to posting extremely high-resolution images. Go to the Shorpy page I’ve linked to above, then click on the image to load the high-resolution version. The detail you can see is simply amazing.

To read more about the fountains, see my post from last week.
