- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Wikipedia Description: John A. Wilson Building
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The John A. Wilson Building, popularly known simply as the Wilson Building, is the building in downtown Washington, D.C. that houses the offices and chambers of the Council and the Mayor of the District of Columbia. It is located at 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
It was built in 1904 - 1908 as the District Building, which remained its name until 1994, when it was changed to honor John A. Wilson — the Chair of the D.C. Council who committed suicide in May 1993.
In 1995, two-thirds of the Wilson Building was leased to the Federal Government for 20 years, because it was severely deteriorated and the bankrupt city could not afford repairs. However, after Congress approved a major renovation for the building, the city was able to regain use of the entire building. However, the repair work necessitated the mayor and council to relocate temporarily to the building at One Judiciary Square until they were able to reoccupy the Wilson Building in September 2001.
In October 2006, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities opened The City Hall Arts Collection at the Wilson Building. Pieces from a diverse body of DC area artists are on public display, hung throughout the halls.
Works include a glass casting by Michael Janis of The Washington Glass School, paintings by Felrath Hines, former chief conservator of the Hirshhorn Museum, Sylvia Snowden and Mark Cameron Boyd, photographs by Alexandra Silverthorne, Harlee Little, and Max Hirshfeld, and sculpture by Jae Ko. The portrait of John A. Wilson is by renowned portrait painter Simmie Knox.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
