Photo of an airship (blimp?) above the White House in 1906, during Teddy Roosevelt's administration.

There must have been some sort of an event going on - there are a lot of people on the grounds in front, bicycles, pedestrians, and carriages. But most are looking up - the blimp must have been quite a site. You certainly can't fly over the White House today!
