Pennsylvania Avenue, Frozen in Time (1919)

What an amazing shot of Pennsylvania Avenue from 1919. This captures much what is happening in the old video we posted from about a decade earlier.

Washington, D.C., circa 1919. "Street scene, Pennsylvania Avenue." Here we see the tower of the Old Post Office as well as a number of vanished Washington landmarks including the Parker Bridget department store.

UPDATE: We received a great tip and link from GoDCer Tim, showing the Parker Bridget building up close. Check it out below. Thanks Tim!
