GoDCers, we need your help! We got this photo of 1940s Washington boarding houses from Ben and we'd love to help him identify the location. If they still stand today, let us know in the comments! Plus, don't forget to read our post on how to run a boarding house in 1880s DC.

GoDCers, we need your help. Where is this? The photo was sent in by Ben this week and we’d love to help him identify the location. I’m guessing that there’s a fifty percent chance they still stand today, but if they do, please let us know in the comments below where you think these are. Thanks!
