A Look at Columbia Heights in 1951: 11th & Kenyon

11th and Kenyon St. NW in 1951
Take a look back in time to 1951 at the intersection of 11th and Kenyon Streets NW in Columbia Heights. See what the area looked like then, including the streetcar tracks running down 11th Street. Cool find!

This is a great shot of what Columbia Heights looked like in 1951 (according the the label). It’s the intersection where, today, you’ll find Wonderland and the soccer field behind Tubman. The streetcar tracks are running down 11th St. (looking left is south) and the street to the right, where the man is crossing, is Kenyon, heading back toward 13th St.
