View from Lafayette Park towards the North Front of the White House

Clark Mills's equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson mounted on Sam Patch has surveyed the White House from the center of Lafayette Park since January 1853. Park and Statue are shown here with iron fencing and the original gates that opened off Pennsylvania Avenue.

This black and white photograph is of Clark Mills' statue of Andrew Jackson in the center of Lafayette Square at night in the snow. The North Grounds of the White House is in the background of the photo, along with the Washington Monument. The photographer, Theodor Horydczak, was a Polish immigrant who was known for his photos of Washington D.C. landmarks.
