Here’s a great photo that we found on Park View DC. Of course it wasn’t called Georgia Avenue then, so read up on the history of the road too.

Check out their post to read a little more about the photo.

    Assuming Georgia Avenue (aka 7th Street Road) is the street in the foreground, could the prominent diagonal avenue that runs roughly from the center to the upper left-hand corner be Vermont Avenue? So the photo would then appear to have been made somewhere just north of Florida Avenue (aka Boundary Street).
