Supreme Court of the United States

The front of the Supreme Court building and the famous words "Equal Justice Under Law" above the pillars.


The building was completed in 1935; the Supreme Court did not have a building of its own for its first 146 years in existence. It was designed by the noted architect Cass Gilbert.
