Great Photo of West Wing and Washington Monument

West Executive Ave. and the Washington Monument (1919)

Doing a little evening photo surfing and came across this stunning one from the Smithsonian’s archives. The building on the left is the West Wing and the one on the right is the State, War and Navy Building. And off in the distance, is the Washington Monument (of course).
