The General Post Office c1846
I love this photo. It is from a tin type of the General Post Office from the corner of 7th Street and E Street, NW, Washington, D.C. During the middle and late 19th century, 7th Street was the prestigious street to be on.
This building is now the Hotel Monaco. I also thought it would be fun to show the first two U.S. postage stamps, which were issued in 1847 and would have been used at this post office.
