This is an aerial view of E St. around 1900. Aerial view of Washington, D.C., looking south, southwest, from old Providence Hospital, showing E Street, Duddington Place, F Street, S.E., between 1st and 2nd Streets Source: Library of Congress Amazon.com Widgets email Tags 1900s, Capitol Hill, Providence Hospital ET Way back in the back there looks like a factory with something that looks like ..anenhower & Co ..anenhowers Co Wonder if the old Sanborn fire insurance maps may be helpful with this.

I think they were close to the Allegheny Coal Company location though they aren’t specifically seen on the Sanborn maps (around vol 2 map 220, 221, 222). “Injunction sought” http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83045462/1903-10-27/ed-1/seq-3/ http://www.loc.gov/rr/geogmap/sanborn/city.php?CITY=Washington&stateID=10 I also found a 1887 Boyd’s directory with a Danenhower & Co which had a location for a feed warehouse at 462 H SW. Seems to be a father son William W and Washington. http://bytesofhistory.org/Cemeteries/DC_Congressional/Obits/D/Obits_Danenhower.pdf http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=90057881 Georgina I see the house where I grew up just south of Duddington on 2nd!
