Additional Details:
In crossing the Aqueduct Bridge over which funeral corteges of many Army and Navy heroes have wended their way to Arlington National Cemetery a view of unusual beauty is obtained. At the summit of a hill stands Georgetown University, the original building of which is over 125 years old. Terraced beneath it at different elevations are the streets of old Georgetown, now West Washington, while reflected in the quiet waters of the Potomac are the Georgetown University and Washington Canoe Club Boat Houses which are built along its shore.
