Dumbarton Bridge [#48]

On December 24 1915, the Dumbarton Bridge that connects Dupont Circle with Georgetown was officially inaugurated. This bridge is influenced by the City Beautiful movement, inspired by the Roman aqueduct and a mountain bridge in Italy with intent to set a precedent for further city bridges. On the image, a spoiled dog challenges the silent Buffalo that decorates the edges of the bridge.
