Panorama of Washington, D.C. in 1865

This is an excellent high resolution photograph of Washington from the Civil War. It’s a view of the city as seen from 14th an B St. NW (i.e., Constitution Ave.) in 1865. Thanks again to the Library of Congress for their

moving the old Girl Scouts headquarters south of the White House

Girl Scouts’ Home Picked Up and Moved

This is an interesting photo which we found in the Library of Congress archives. The image is from 1924 when the old headquarters for the Girl Scouts of America was being moved. No small feat, as you can see.

Below is a terrific photo taken in 1893. This is the intersection (today) of Wisconsin and O St. NW in Georgetown. The main building you see on the corner is still there. Check out the Google Street View today. Cool.
