St. John's: 1900

St. John's: 1900

"St. John's Church, 16th & H streets N.W." From a series of dozens of National Photo glass negatives showing various Washington landmarks. The Library of Congress has given them a date range of "between 1918 and 1920," though they all seem to be from around 1900. Anyone out there from the LOC? View full size.

 

Locomobility

The car is a 1900 Locomobile steamer.

Neighborhood

I used to work right around the corner, and had to walk to a court off Lafayette Square frequently. It was always a pleasure to see St. John's facade and steeple along the way. It's a building with character, much needed in that part of the city, where bland office buildings have unfortunately taken root.

Church of the Presidents

This charming church is right across the square from the White House, and every US President since 1816 has attended there at least once.
