Description

A 1933 Washington Post article reported $1,020 in unspecified repairs planned by the Public Works Administration (PWA) for the United States Patent Office. The old patent office, which was constructed from 1836 to 1865, is now the home of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery.
