A place for writing, posting my photos, and more.
Great photos Mary! Even though I haven't been to Idaho's capitol, it seems like I've been here since as you say so many state capitols have a similar design (domes and rotundas and lots of marble). Great idea to put the lobbyists in the vault!

Wow, what a fabulous building, Ms.M. They've certainly done a magnificent job of restoration. Idaho can be proud.I agree with Katie, the vault is the best place for lobbyists!Wonderful stuff.
Thanks, Katie. This building is very similar to the capitol in MO where I grew up, altho the MO capitol has a statue of Ceres (goddess of agriculture) on top. Along with the lobbyists, I can think of a few legislators that should also be put in the vault. Anon, thank you for your "film noir" poem. :-)Dive, they did do good job with the restoration. It was almost derailed by a few stringent budget hawks, but luckily they didn't prevail. I laughed when I saw "Lobbyists" on the door of the vault. I wonder if the nation's Capitol in Washington has a vault? I can think of a good use for one....
Beautifully captured, Mary!
Thank you, Sheila!
Wow, gorgeous building. You're correct in that it's similar to other state capitol buildings (Tacoma, Sacramento), but each has its own beauty. It looks like the finest materials were used here.
Thank you, Petrea. And you're right that even though these capitol buildings are similar, they each have a unique beauty.
