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.

      Quite the structure. If only the words were true in 'all' cases. Nicely shot.
