View of 14th Street Construction From Above (1920)

This is a cool photo we found on Shorpy. It shows a few men doing work on the curbs and streetcar stop. Any GoDCers able to recognize where this is on 14th? I can make out a 717 on one of the businesses, which would be just below New York Ave. on the east side.

    You can see an address on the side of the building: 717 14th St., which puts this right at the corner of 14th and G.
