Old Photo Friday: Women’s Suffrage Parade in 1914

February 1913. "Woman suffrage -- hikers arriving in Washington from New York." Today marks the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women the right to vote. Over the next few days we'll post some more suffrage photos. Harris & Ewing glass negative. (Shorpy)

Here’s an excellent photo capturing history in Washington. This is a parade of suffragettes but I can’t quite make out where they are. If you know where this is, or think you recognize the building in the foreground or background, add your comments below.
