Mystery photo from space...can you guess this spot on our beautiful planet? Hint: after the signing of the Treat of Paris in 1783, this settlement emerged as a Nation's Capital.

Annapolis in Maryland, USA.
Is it odd being down here thinking about being up there... or, like going thru vacation photos?
Super shot by the way!!
I believe that the Congress met in the Maryland State House, Annapolis, Maryland from November 26, 1783 to August 19, 1784.
Errr... Thanks for hint! ;-))
This is not Washington DC, as it did not exist in 1783. It also doesn't appear to be Philadelphia, the U.S. capital then. So I'm guessing it's the capital of some other country, since the clue is vague about which one. Maybe Kingston, Ontario?
Great shot !
The Paris Peace Treaty ended the revoluntary war between Britain and what was to be known today as the United States. Hence, this must be Washinton D.C.
