This is another one of those fun “then and now” photos that make history come alive.  I love the old storefront for a new type of business in 1919, electric motor batteries.  It’s also interesting to see how the buildings across the street reflect in the windows.  The building is still there, but the storefront has changed quite a bit. — [GOOGLE MAPS]

Washington, D.C., circa 1919. “Roy F. Carty.” Chief draftsman for the Shipping Board during the war, Roy went into business for himself in 1919 at 1407 14th Street N.W. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.
