Presidential Parade Preparation, Part II

Another one of the banks that are right across the street from the White House. This used to be Riggs Bank. It was the bank of presidents for many many years. In their archives is a checked that Lincoln made out. When PNC bought Riggs, they started to go through all of that type of historical stuff. No word on when or if this will ever be put into some sort of a display or museum.

The presidential reviewing stand is nearing completion. The seal is now up.

These are pictures of the Old Executive Office Building. It was built between 1871 and 1888.
