Today’s photo, “Scott Circle,” was taken by dracisk 365/365 on December 11. The sculpture is a memorial dedicated to Samuel Hahnemann and is just east of the Circle.

From the U.S. National Library of Medicine: “The impressive memorial that stands to the east of the Scott Circle, near the cross section of Massachusetts and Rhode Island Avenues, honors Samuel C. F. Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician and the founder of homeopathic school of medicine. Authorized by Congress in January 1900 and unveiled the following June, the monument was the gift of the American Institute of Homeopathy”
