1920s Drawing of Pennsylvania Avenue

What a beautiful drawing from the 1920s. This was done by Susan Brown Chase.

Landscape drawing shows storefronts on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC between 22nd and 23rd streets. A shopkeeper stands in the doorway of one of the buildings. Women are on the sidewalk. A car is parked at the curb.
