After a weekend away (yay for federal holidays!) it’s back to DC today. This is the fountain at Dupont Circle, where Connecticut Ave intersects with 19th and P St NW.
The fountain honors Samuel Francis DuPont, a Rear Admiral in the US Navy who served in the Mexican-American War and in the Civil War. The current fountain (which replaced an earlier statue of DuPont himself) was installed in 1921, and the figures represent the sea, the wind, and the stars.
