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.
