Here’s a great color photo courtesy the D.C. Public Library Flickr photostream. It was taken, just at the turn of the century.

The house was built in 1881 and was the home of James G. Blaine, former Speaker of the House, Senator, and twice the Secretary of State. His LinkedIn resume would look pretty sweet.

We are look at the corner of 20th and P St., where there is a Le Pain Quotidien (solid and healthy brunch) and Pizzeria Paradiso (awesome beer selection) today.
