Panama Legation at New Hampshire and Q St. (1925)

What a beautiful building. Sadly, this building no longer exists.

Washington, D.C., circa 1925. "Panama Legation, New Hampshire Avenue and Q Street N.W." 18th Street is on the left and New Hampshire Avenue on the right. This is one of the earliest examples of a stop sign ("Boulevard Stop") in the archive. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.

Take a look at the same intersection today on Google Street View.
