HAHNE_970806_01.JPG: Hahnemann Memorial
This memorial to Samuel Hahnemann is located at one side of the Scott Circle.
Samuel Hahnemann is the founder of a system of homeopathic medicine. Based on the principle that "like cures like," homeopathic physicians used carefully selected remedies in small doses to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. This gentle system was a contrast to "heroic" medical practices of the time, such as bleeding, purging and leeching. A German physician and graduate of the University of Erlangen, Samuel Hahnemann never visited the United States. He lived his last years in Paris and was buried there in 1843.
Wikipedia Description: Samuel Hahnemann Monument
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Samuel Hahnemann Monument is a Northwest, Washington, D.C. monument, located in Scott Circle, at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue.
It consists of a stepped oval platform, a curved granite half-wall with benches, four bronze bas-relief panels, a central arch, and a larger-than-life bronze statue of Hahnemann within a half-domed niche decorated with a vividly-colored Art Nouveau mosaic. Julius F. Harder was the architect of the monument. The architectural carvings, bas-relief panels and central statue were sculpted by Charles Henry Niehaus.
The sculpture was cast in 1896, and the monument was dedicated on June 21, 1900.
The inscription reads:

1997 photos: Since 1984, I've lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
From 1981 to 2002, photos were taken using a Pentax ME Super camera.
From 1989 to 2002, I was doing all pictures as prints (instead of slides which I had grown up on).
In 1997, at the age of 40, my photo obsession began and I started taking thousands of photos per year.
In September, 2002, I switched to digital cameras and the number of photos exploded.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Trips this year: North Carolina (Dad), Florida (Mom), using a time share in Arkansas to visit Civil War sites in Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Civil War became my excuse to see places I'd never been to in my life and it was a great motivator for 20 years or so.
