Washington circa 1926. "Semmes Motor Co., Maryland Hennery Association truck." A hennery being a place where hens are raised. My Shorpy GPS (Guessing Possible Street) says this might be the back of a building that faced Pennsylvania Avenue. National Photo Company Collection glass negative. View full size.
Washington, D.C., circa 1926. "Wilkins-Rogers Milling Co., exterior, 3261 Water Street." The Washington Flour mill on K Street, formerly Water Street, in Georgetown.

Washington circa 1925. "Tepper Building, Standard Engraving Co., 470 Louisiana Avenue N.W."
