Architecture[edit]

Something about the Architecture, the inspirations and the like would be a nice addition to the article, and very approproiate given the article is about the building itself and not the institution as a whole... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.15.153 (talk) 12:21, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Courtroom Frieze[edit]

Per YHoshua's edit, I do think this deserves some discussion here, expecially in light of the continuing atheist crusade to rid America of references to religious faith. However, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the information currently there, and I think that - suitably expanded - it belongs in the main section (or a subsection thereof), rather than under misc.

Why I put back in the photos that were here before Wikibophop's edits[edit]

A certain user took out my photo and that of another person several weeks ago and unilaterally replaced them with his/her own. I was too busy with lawyer stuff at the time to catch it. I am reverting that now because (1) the quality of the new photos was terrible; (2) there was no captions or detail offered, increasing the chance that the photos were probably copied off of an existing Web site; and (3) the user failed to properly warn anyone of the proposed deletion in advance. --Coolcaesar 09:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

capitalization[edit]

I knew someone would complain. The name of the building should always be capitalized. APK (If You Wanna) 15:20, 17 June 2009 (UTC)


Visiting the Court[edit]

I added references to the Visiting the Court section taken directly from the US Supreme Courts website and online PDF's. This section was marked for previously not citing sources and that it could be challenged or removed. Please review and either remove the field indicating lack of sources and/or comment here so that we can further discuss and provide any additional references that may be required to bring this section of the article into compliance with expected standards. Thank you for bringing attention to this oversight, I am hopeful that any outstanding requirements can be sorted out through discussion and collaboration. 24.188.207.20 (talk) 22:20, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Any takers on this? Is it alright if I remove this box in a few days if no one has additional requests for references? 24.188.207.20 (talk) 02:21, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Move to "U.S. Supreme Court Building"?[edit]

Opinions are requested at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Naming conventions for United States federal buildings, which affects this article, which would be moved to U.S. Capitol in accordance with an abbreviated standard, as the NRHP uses. Cheers! bd2412 T 15:24, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Is it somehow impossible to take pictures of the building's north and south sides? I realize that the grand east and west facades would tend to draw one's attention, but a better idea of the building's overall shape and size could be given by adding coverage of the rest of the building. Pass it on to Wikimedia as well, please.--172.190.185.207 (talk) 02:04, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
