Castle Building from NMAH Plaza
View of the Smithsonian Building from the terrace plaza of the National Museum of History and Technology, now known as the National Museum of American History. Framed by flagpoles, the Castle Building across the Mall is still missing the roof on one of its north towers (the lower tower roof was destroyed in the fire of 1865), which was re-created from old photographs in 1965. Buses can be seen parked along Madison Drive.
