The View

Yes, Odie is right. I'm sitting a couple of blocks from there right now. The building you can see behind the truck, through the trees, is the old Kann's department store on Pennsylvania Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets.

Sleek, man

Apart from the damaged fender, this vehicle has a sleek look accentuated further by that spare tire. Fabulous material for a hot rod in later years.

Looking along 8th Street

With the Old Patent Office (now the National Portrait Gallery) at Eighth & F Streets NW in the background.

[It could also be the identical north facade at Eighth and G but I think you're right, as this photo seems to have been taken near the Center Market at Eighth and Pennsylvania. Kudos for correctly identifying the building as the Patent Office and not the Treasury. - Dave]
