Wikipedia Description: Embassy of Peru in Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Embassy of Peru in Washington, D.C. also known as the Emily J. Wilkins House, is the diplomatic mission of the Republic of Peru to the United States. It is located at 1700 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C., in the Embassy Row neighborhood.
The embassy also operates Consulate-Generals in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Paterson, New Jersey, San Francisco.
The Ambassador is Harold Forsyth, who is concurrently the non-resident ambassador to the nation of Barbados.
The building was designed by Jules Henri de Sibour. Beriah Wilkins lived there; he married Emily Wilkins. Their son John F. Wilkins inherited the property in 1910. He married Julia C. Wilkins; they entertained there.
In 1946, Australia purchased the property. On January 31,1973, Australia sold the property to the Republic of Peru.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2014 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used my Fuji XS-1 camera but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Winchester, VA, Nashville, TN, and Atlanta, GA),
Michigan to visit mom in the hospice before she died and then a return trip after she died, and
my 9th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Sacramento, Oakland, and Los Angeles).
Ego strokes: Paul Dickson used one of my photos as the author photo in his book "Aphorisms: Words Wrought by Writers".
Number of photos taken this year: just over 470,000.
