10,000 Bottles of Whistle

Washington, D.C., 1921. "Whistle car." A truck filled with Whistle, the "beverage wrapped in bottles." National Photo Company glass negative.

We dug this photo up on Shorpy and it shows a truck loaded down with 10,000 bottles of Whistle, orange soda. I’m trying to make out the building numbers behind it, but no luck. Anyone know where this was?
