View of State Street from the bridge over the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks, looking towards the Capitol in 1904.

This photo was taken during the construction of the new Capitol Building, and scaffolding is visible where the dome would be built. Notice that State Street, a main avenue of the neighborhood, is unpaved, and a trolley is coming towards the photographer.
