1) The Supreme Court Building houses the Supreme Court of the United States. Completed in 1935, it is in Washington, D.C. at 1 First Street, NE, in the block immediately east of the United States Capitol. The building is under the jurisdiction of the Architect of the Capitol. On May 4, 1987, the Supreme Court Building was designated a National Historic Landmark.

The building is the official residence and workplace of the Supreme Court Justices of the United States. This building was also referred to as The Marble Palace by John P. Frank, and is located at One First Street within a mile proximity of the Library of Congress, NE Washington. The physical construction of this building began in 1932 and was completed in 1935, however the idea to create this building originated from William Howard Taft in 1912 and was officially completed under the guidance of Chief Justice Hughes. The building was designed by Cass Gilbert, who was a well-known architect and friend to Justice Taft.

2+3_)The Library of Congress (LOC) is the research library that officially serves the United States Congress and is the de facto national library of the United States. It is the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States. The Library is housed in three buildings on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.; it also maintains the Packard Campus in Culpeper, Virginia, which houses the National Audio-Visual Conservation Center. The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world. Its "collections are universal, not limited by subject, format, or national boundary, and include research materials from all parts of the world and in more than 450 languages. Two-thirds of the books it acquires each year are in languages other than English." The Library of Congress moved to Washington in 1800, after sitting for eleven years in the temporary national capitals of New York (New York City) and Philadelphia. John J. Beckley, who became the first Librarian of Congress, was paid two dollars per day and was required to also serve as the Clerk of the House of Representatives. Quote: Wikipedia

This is the Supreme Court, not the Library of Congress ;-)

Ich weiß das, Jens. Mir ist leider noch immer nicht klar, wenn ich Bilder in einem neuen Spot unterbringe, wie ich jedes einzelne davon exakt benennen kann. Hier war es leider als Haupt Titel "Library of Congress". Sorry. Gruß Herbert

Ich habe gerade einen Spot für den Supreme Court angelegt (schönes Bild übrigens, also Deines). Du musst halt nur ablehnen, das Bild zu einem bereits bestehenden Spot hinzuzufügen. Meines schlug das System aufgrund der Nähe auch als Kongressbibliothek vor

Es ist nur dann möglich richtige "Titel" zu vergeben, wenn man für jedes Bild einen seperaten Spot anlegt, habe ich das so richtig verstanden?. Gruß Herbert

Ja, zumindest dann, wenn die Bilder von unterschiedlichen Spots stammen, musst Du die alle einzeln hochladen und den Spot eintragen, sonst gibt es "Spotchaos"
