Transitional neighborhood

This area of Washington was residential, with many homes owned or occupied by military officers as it was walking distance to the War Department. General McClellan lived just a block west of this site, at what is now the NW corner of 17th and I Streets. It was starting to transition to businesses in the 1920s, as many stately homes unfortunately met their demise.

New Windows-- already?

A scant 11 year old building needing new DH sashes already? I've seen 100 year old sashes that were in decent shape if kept painted and glazed. These would have been old growth Douglas Fir probably.

Differences

A lot of changes around the area in 18 years' time.
