Exploring D.C.’s Early Days of WWII Through Library of Congress Photos

Take a look back in time and explore D.C. during the early days of World War II with photos from the Library of Congress. See how the houses look remarkably similar to those in Philadelphia. Check out the photos here!

These are some great photos I came across on Flickr. These are from the Library of Congress, taken around 1941 or 1942, during the early days of World War II. They really depict a different D.C., although the houses look pretty much the same — yet strikingly like Philadelphia. The ones on Flickr aren’t all of D.C., but they’re worth checking out.
