Description

Exterior view of the Capitol building's north facade, from the north gate entrance looking toward the building, 1935. In the background stands the Capitol building, and the clock and cupola are visible on the clock tower above the entrance to the building. "The H-shaped plan of the Capitol reflects the division of the government between the lower and upper houses of the legislature....As the General Assembly evolved, it comprised the Council [meeting in the west wing, to the right] and the House of Burgesses [in the east wing, to the left], each of which met separately."
