This is an amazing old photo from 1888. It shows the Windom House at the intersection of 16th St. and Mass Ave. This is where the Australian Embassy sits today.
View northwest past the equestrian statue (by Henry Kirke Brown) of General Winfield Scott. Includes the Queen Anne-style Windom House on the northwest corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 16th Street NW, and the Hutchins House next door to the west. (Current site of the Australian Embassy).
