Forgotten DC Fotos

The Washington Post had two features today showing fantastic pictures of DC.  The first set captures the city during the WWII-era, and has a color and vividness that makes them almost feel modern. 

May 1943

 The others depict “Unseen DC” as photographed by Washington portrait and sports photographer Post’s David Deal.  I especially loved the picture of the Hecht Co. building on New York Ave. and the inside of the Franklin School at 13th and K, NW (two place I’ve been dying to see!)   And check out this picture of the Howard Theater:

Among the other fascinating photos are shots of the basement stairs at the Masonic Temple and the abandoned trolley station under Dupont.
