These are some great photos I came across on Flickr. These are from the Library of Congress, taken around 1941 or 1942, during the early days of World War II. They really depict a different D.C., although the houses look pretty much the same — yet strikingly like Philadelphia. The ones on Flickr aren’t all of D.C., but they’re worth checking out.
