Shorpy always has great photos. You can spent way too much time digging through finding gems like this.

Gotta love these colorized photos, though it’s not as good as the Lincoln or Lindbergh photos.

Check out the comparison … so cool!

    There’s a govt building called Liberty Loan…just south of the Bureau of Engraving. Looks about 1918 vintage.
