1942 Washington, in Color

We’re not quite sure where this is, but maybe some GoDCers recognize the buildings. If you do, please comment below.

Street scene in Washington, D.C., winter of 1941-42. 4x5 Kodachrome transparency by Louise Rosskam, probably taken near the N and Union intersection of her other shots. Clues are the Chung Wah laundry at 1264, the J. Marucci barbershop and the A. Peterman clothing store.
