Old Photo Friday: Women’s Suffrage Parade in 1914

Here’s an excellent photo capturing history in Washington. This is a parade of suffragettes but I can’t quite make out where they are. If you know where this is, or think you recognize the building in the foreground or background, add your comments below.

UPDATE: Found another great suffrage photo on Shorpy. This one was from February 1913.

February 1913. "Woman suffrage -- hikers arriving in Washington from New York." (Shorpy)
