Looking Into the Past: North Capitol and H, Washington, DC

See this scene today. It breaks my heart to see how much of DC is now just featureless, boring office buildings. I was obviously born in the wrong era.


The only thing left from this picture is what I believe to be the original hydrant location. They've obviously reworked a lot of the street, but this was my best guess.


Original photo from the Library of Congress.


I created a group for these types of images, if you plan on shooting your own, please join the group!
