National Geographic : 1964 Jan
FIFTY FEET ALOFT in a power com pany's hydraulic lift, or "aerial bucket," National Geographic photographer George F. Mobley finds an exciting new way to view the United States Capitol. From this vantage point he made the picture that appears on the cover and on pages 4-5 of this issue. Many months ago the U. S. Capitol His torical Society sought National Geographic Society collaboration in issuing an authentic, colorful guidebook and history of the Na tion's most important public building. A team of Geographic specialists-editors, writers, photographers, artists, layout men, and researchers-combined their skills. The result: a much-needed book (page 1), and a magazine article (pages 4-59) that takes you on an unprecedented working-hours tour of the Capitol.
