On this day in 1789, 69 members of Congress cast their ballots to elect George Washington the first president of the United States. In 1869, the one-dollar bill was redesigned with a portrait of him, seven years after its first appearance. Ever since, George Washington has become the “I’ve-been-everywhere” man. He gets washed in jeans pockets, laid under pillows in exchange for lost teeth and is called the dirtiest object in the world. Here a few of them are showering a bride whose wedding I photographed last year. It is said that money never brings happiness. The bride begs to differ.
