Then and Now

upshur-apartments-ca-1924Then: The Upshur Apartments on the north side of the 200 block of, where else, Upshur St, NW. The photo appears to be ca. 1924 (Library of Congress, #thc 5a41974)

upshur-apartments-2009Now: The apartment building appears largely the same today. I think its a shame that the store next door is now a church. The altered facade does nothing for the street presence.

  1. Would you rather wish the church were a crack house?
