First Floor Plan : The Capitol

Subject

Capitol (Williamsburg, Va.)
Block 08. Building 11.

Description

Lantern slide featuring the floor plan of the first floor of the Capitol, Williamsburg, Virginia. It is the thirty-second slide in a set produced by the Pacific Stereopticon Co. of Los Angeles, California, now defunct, to illustrate the story of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin's dream to restore a portion of Williamsburg, Virginia to its 18th-century appearance as a shrine to early American ideals.

This plan features the ground floor layout of the Capitol with the General Court on one side and the House of Burgesses on the other. The two are connected by a an covered piazza and each has apsidal ends which give the south side of the building its distinctive curves. Office spaces for clerks and secretaries are located on the north side of the ground floor and have simpler squared ends.
