February 28, 1913. "Woman suffrage. Greeting hikers arriving from New York." The scene at Pennsylvania Avenue and 15th Street in Washington. From the pages of the Washington Post: "General" Rosalie Jones and her suffrage "army" marched triumphantly into the Capital shortly before noon yesterday, through the Capitol grounds and down Pennsylvania avenue, with an escort of local enthusiasts and citizens which fairly choked the streets and delayed traffic. It was one of the most remarkable street demonstrations ever seen here."
The bunting is decoration for the upcoming presidential inauguration.
