The 1915 bombing of the United States Capital was one of the most underappreciated events of the 20th century and this photo shows the aftermath of the attack. A bold and beautiful silver gelatin image from Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back with an original paper caption as well. This is the only image from this little known attack on civilian soil we have ever seen!
