Washington, D.C., circa 1922. “Star Building from air.” The Washington Star newspaper building at the center is at the intersection of 11th Street N.W. and Pennsylvania Avenue, which runs diagonally across the photo. The big building with the tower us the Old Post Office. There’s a lot to see here, including laundry hung out to dry. National Photo Company glass negative.
