Vintage photos of:
Washington, D.C., circa 1918. "Old house, Md. Ave. N.E. Built by Thomas Taylor in 1876." The caption says Maryland Avenue, but the street sign indicates otherwise. Thought I'd better post this before any more chunks of the glass negative (or house) fall off. National Photo Co. glass negative. View full size.
"Miss Cecelia [Cecilia] O'Dea, 1922." Cecelia, who played the piano and sang, had her name in the pages of the Washington Post maybe a dozen times, usually as an accompanist or soloist at recitals and such. Now, 80 years later, here's her picture. Take it away, Cecelia. National Photo Collection glass negative. View full size.
