Now This is a Full Service Bank

While I can’t put my finger on what it is, there is something about this image I really love. It might be the car and how shiny it is. It might be that a bank has a doorman. It might be that this building used to be a house … in fact, it used to be Boss Shepherd’s house. This bank was located on the northeast corner of K and Connecticut in Shepherd’s row. You can read my earlier post on the row here. This image must be from the 1920s after the neighborhood started to go commercial (Library of Congress, #npcc 30643).district-national-bank
