This photograph was taken in June, 2012, when the United States Supreme Court began a long overdue face-lift. Just as our faces fall as we get older, the facade of the 80-year-old building had begun to fall — marble, mortar and other stones were dropping from the building. Not every day, but often enough to make it necessary that extensive work be done to protect people below from being injured from falling objects. Like most face-lifts, the building did not look its best during the two-year process, but now that the work is done and the scaffolding has come down, the Supreme Court is the best looking girl in town.
