View of 14th and Pennsylvania Ave. From the Willard Hotel

I can spend two or three hours researching an in depth “Three Things…” or “If Walls Could Talk” post and ultimately end up with the same number of readers as a quick afternoon photo post.

Today, I’m going to flip the order or my posts and kick the morning off with a cool old photo from Shorpy. Below is a photo of the intersection at 14th and Pennsylvania Ave. NW.

Aerial view in front of the Willard Hotel at 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, showing pedestrians and rather dense traffic in autos and streetcars. - 1939
