The same “Beaux-Arts / Greco Roman” style architecture can be found throughout the realm. As we grow the site and upload huge archive we have amassed on TG, we will keep adding to this post to include as many “Capitol buildings” as we can find. If you spot one send it in to us to help build this archive.

Buildings built in the 1800s.

The first photo is from 1852 at St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia. The construction supposedly started in 1818 and was completed by 1858, which is 40 years of construction. By the photo in 1852, it looks pretty completed as we can see. So it took another 6 years to complete 🤔

The last 3 photos are State Buildings from America.

Years of Construction

Georgia State Capital 4 years.

Michigan State Capital 6 years.

Texas State Capital 6 years.

When you can throw up a world’s fair in 2 years with all that excavation, engineering, design and construction, these state capital’s would be a doddle. Maybe Russia went for the long construction narrative instead. You decide..
