Cool old mansion



I saw this on Flickr user rockcreek's treasure trove of old photos, it's an old mansion called Belmont, which used to be on Clifton between 13th and 14th (here's a map).

Pretty cool looking house, would be neat if it were still there. There's more info on it here.

Thanks for the link! There also appear to be some photos of this house on the Smithsonian's Flickr page, but so far they're mum on whether they have more info about them:
