The National Archives

In this location today. Center Market had room for 700 vendors inside in 1900. Was built in 1871 according to The National Museum of American History. Would love to see pictures inside of vendors and later skating rink and dance floor.

Engel's Autocar

Have Used Autocar for Six Years

C. Engel's Sons, wholesale provisions, Center Market, Washington, say about Autocar: "Best car ever made. We have three of them and they are absolutely O.K. We bought our first six years ago."
