Photo shows a man and a boy in summer straw hats happily displaying some unidentifiable papers on F Street, with the Treasury and a new electric hooded arc streetlight in the background. One of a series of scenes near Painter's office at 14th and E streets, this picture bears the hallmarks of the new "snapshot" style now made possible by the invention of the quick, hand-held Kodak: natural smiles and the movement of the ladies under the umbrella.

  • One of the most beautiful buildings, to my mind, is the old one with the witch’s peak at the NE corner of 7th and Penn, NW. Whenever I see a film or video shot down Penn, my eyes are immediately drawn to that beautiful old building. Would love to know more about it.

      That is a beautiful building … let me see what old photos I can find (and stories).

    I am a native Washingtonian, as well as my mother was. As you know the holidays are rapidly approaching and in that vain, I was wondering if you have any or anyone have photos of the downtown department stores windows? I remember them well from my childhood of the 50’s and early 60’s when my dad would pack us in the car to go downtown and see all the windows. Does anyone know how far back those windows dated to?

    Also, I remember the holiday parades that were held as well throughout the area so perhaps there is some of those pictures out there.

    Just thought I would request and hopefully some will appear in the near future. Thanks everyone, Kathleen
