Fun and Games on the Hill

Back before BrickBreaker and online Solitaire, those on Capitol Hill still had plenty of ways to entertain themselves during slower times. Here, pages and Senators play a bipartisan game of marbles outside the Capitol on April 26, 1924. Sen. Samuel Ralston leads off in this “championship” game as Sens. Magnus Johnson, Lee Overman and Simeon Fess wait their turn. This photo is part of the National Photo Company Collection at the Library of Congress.
