Looking Into the Past: Inlet Bridge, Washington, DC

Margaret Gorman, the first Miss America, with a very rare (as in, none survive) Birmingham automobile with a rockin' reptile skin print exterior! Very little has changed except that the light poles over the fountains are no longer there, and the fountains themselves are a little different.

 

See this scene today.

 

Original photo taken around 1921, courtesy of the Library of Congress, discovered via Shorpy.
