This is what the area around today’s Metro Center looked like in 1930. This photo shows 13th and G St. on May 9th, 1930. Of course, don’t miss the Wilkins Coffee sign in the image below and then check out this photo of Robert DeNiro’s doppelganger.
Looking west on G Street NW from 13th Street showing the commercial buildings on the northwest corner of the intersection including the Church of the Epiphany.
