Likely Address

Based on South Capital, D, and Canal Sts, and reviewing historical aerials of the area, it appears that the likely address would have been either 400 S Capitol St or 1 D St SE. Until sometime between 1957 and 1963 it looks like the building was still there, and it was cleared with the building of the Interstate 395.

The original block was bounded by S Cap, D, Canal Sts, and NJ Ave SE. Today a a highway ramp and Ivy Pl SE bisect the block. http://goo.gl/maps/xgOeA

We need Clint Eastwood

To say "Get off my lawn" instead of having a boring little "Keep off the grass" sign.

South Capitol, Canal and D

This 1924 ad in the corner gives the address as South Capitol, Canal and D street SW, so maybe below the Rayburn/Longworth office buildings?

On Capitol Hill

Don't miss the U.S. Capitol behind the trees on the right. Anyone know the address?
