Description

Dated circa 1916, this newly paved street is at the Center Market, B Street or what is now Constitution Avenue and 7th Avenue in Washington, D.C.

The idea for a central market in the nation's capitol was begun by President George Washington himself. 

The large Center Market was built in 1871 and razed in 1931.  The National Archives building now sits on this same lot.
