About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Guarantee Deja Vu

This building makes a number of appearances here on Shorpy, from a number of different angles and from a couple of different years.

Approaching from the east in 1905, on the right here.

Approaching from the west in 1906 in the distance beyond the train station, a portion of which can be seen across North Carolina Ave in the 1908 picture here.

In the three years, from 1905 to 1908, the street seems to have become paved,

Thanks for these pictures of this great old building, which still stands.

Abbreviated

The building still stands, minus the turret, on the northeast corner of Atlantic Avenue and S. North Carolina Avenue.
