    maybe it’s just my PC, but I can’t seem to enlarge the picture. Cool photo.

    H if you go to the original you may be able to see it larger by looking at the tiff.

    I can see that the street car was coming/going to Potomac Park and a WL Simmons truck selling ice.

    Funny but the passenger in one of those cars look like he is either reading a newspaper or a map.

    Does anyone know what type of trees are in Thomas Circle? They are quite interesting in the Spring/Summer
