9th and G Street Looked Very Different in 1922

How awesome is this old photo of 9th St. NW? According to the Library of Congress, this is from 1922, although it was mislabeled 9th and S St. Moore’s Rialto was located at 713 9th St. NW, which is close to G St. NW. I believe you’re looking at 9th St. heading north toward the left and G St. heading to the right.
