Copyvio[edit]

69.181.123.119 contributed most of the article in one copy / paste move. It is a duplicate of http://montanakids.com/db_engine/presentations/presentation.asp?pid=3&sub=Capitol+History so I have removed it unless someone can prove it was here first. --Dual Freq 13:11, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Pictures?[edit]

Winning competition design by George R. Mann for the Montana State Capitol, 1896 (unbuilt).

The picture on this article is clearly not the current Montana state capitol building. I don't know if it is mislabeled or perhaps a rendering of a proposed building, but the article does not make that clear. Can anyone put an actual photograph of the building on this page? 64.61.29.102 (talk) 20:23, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Having been alerted to this, 5 months later, on Humanities reference desk, this is definitely not the Montana capitol, and I have removed it from the article. Maybe it's an early artist's conception, but it's not the right building. It bears a strong (though not identical) reference to the Minnesota capitol, which of course does not have mountains in the background. Someone pulled a fast one on the Library of Congress with this image. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots 07:58, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
According to the LOC page this was a competition drawing, not the final design, so one can logically conclude that a different design won. howcheng {chat} 23:51, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that issue was settled awhile back, though apparently not here. The architect combined elements of the St. Paul building and the Arkansas building, I think it was, and submitted the design. The eventual winning design was different. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 00:43, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
