Check out this amazing 1927 photo of 14th St. Looking north up 14th Street NW from just below Constitution Avenue NW. Visible is the Commerce Department and the Willard Hotel in the distance. A set of streetcar tracks appear embedded in the street in the foreground. Source: Dig DC You're looking north along 14th St. towards the Commerce Department.
