Amazing Photo of Watergate and Kennedy Center Construction from the Air

This is such a great find. We came across this while checking out our favorite Facebook page, Old Time D.C. This is a shot from an Eastern Airlines flight on approach to National Airport in 1967. You can see the Kennedy Center under construction on the right and the Watergate buildings going up on the left. What an amazing photo.
