Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work
The bit with the Washington Monument is definitely a shot of contemporary Washington. It's looking to the west, and the Lincoln Memorial is clearly visible past the Reflecting Pool; so are modern buildings just across the Potomac. So that's probably either stock footage put in there for effect, or a scene set in the 1960s (or modern day, if they're departing from the source material).
