Original Allen & Ginter Week: General Government and State Capitol Buildings of the United States

Back in the early fall, I purchased a bunch of original Allen & Ginter cards off of eBay.  Over the next week, as part of my Original Allen & Ginter Theme Week, you'll get to see the various cards (plus some other cards that I already owned).

Today, we begin with a set that I now own exactly one card (out of 50):  General Government and State Capitol Buildings of the United States.  This particular set was issued in 1887!

I thought it would be fun to acquire at least one representative from each set that I see online (which is how I ended up with the capitol building of New Hampshire (located in Concord).  I found a modern image of New Hampshire's capitol building - and what do you know?  It's still the same exact building!

I hope you enjoyed the first original Allen & Ginter card of the week - this is the only card featuring an inanimate object.



For completion, here is the entire checklist for the set (in alphabetical order):
