History of The Picture

20 Dec

The lovely picture that sits atop The Location was taken from inside the bus stop at the southeast corner of 16th and U.  But back when the 14th Street area was filled with luxury car showrooms and was known as “Auto Row”, this corner was also home to the Paige-Jewett automobile dealership.  The building currently serves as the Center for Community Change and is a contributing property to the 16th Street Historic District.  Thanks to Shorpy for the pic.
