I came across this photo in the Library of Congress’ archives. It’s clear that these traffic signs are completely unclear. How the hell do you make sense of this?
From the Lorstan Photographers studio in the background, it is somewhere on F St. NW, probably in the 1950 (a guess). In the 1940s, Lorstan was located at 1429 F St. and in the 1950s, their address moved to 1119 F St. If you know a little more about this location, please feel free to comment below.
