Subject: RE: Signal Hd. Qtrs. Washn. City April 1865
Beautiful shot, Walt. Source? Compare Brown, facing p. 84. At first I thought ID was wrong, but I blv Brown's is the same bldg...only later, maybe thirty yrs later! Appears that the street has been lowered significantly. I think Brown must have gotten a "recent" (1890s) shot.|
Forgot when street nrs. were changed in DC--perehaps the Columbia Historical Soc could help pin down--maybe inform you if any of the SigC hq bldgs still exist.
Note the enormous flagpole in your shot.
