Then and Now: Can You Recognize Washington, D.C., from These Old Pictures?
Although Washington, D.C., is a baby city compared to somewhere like Shanghai

If the statues and museums weren’t a clue, respecting history is kind of D.C.’s thing. D.C. doesn’t typically demolish the old buildings but rather builds atop them to create a more safe, effective and aesthetically pleasing Washington, D.C., while maintaining the past within the foundation. Take a look at these old and new pictures to see how much the city of D.C. has transformed over the years.
