    These columns were built in 1896 and erected on the east wing of the US capital Building. In 1984 they were replaced due to their deteriorated condition and relocated, freestanding, at a nearby park.

    Holy sß?ˆ† are those columns made of marble? The park is brilliant. What is the name of it?

    Of course great work! The only thing missing may be some puffy clouds.

    Is it weird that they came down in 1984? Thinking along the lines of George Orwell's novel.
