More About Lost Washington, D.C. by Paul Kelsey Williams; Marc Fisher
 
 
 
Overview
A nostalgic look at the important buildings lost in the capital city, following the changing transport of the city from horse-drawn streetcars to electric trolleys and steam trains crossing Maryland Avenue Sites represented here include Hoover Airport, the Washington Arsenal, Fox Theater, Center Market, Matthew Brady's studio, the Old Navy Building, the Ebbit House Hotel, and General Noble Redwood Treehouse which stood on the Mall from 1894 to 1932. Lost buildings include the Washington Arsenal and Washington Penitentiary where the Lincoln conspirators were hanged and the distinctive Center Market building which was razed along with Arcade, Liberty, and Dutch Markets. Many theaters have gone and are represented here, including Victorian (Albaugh's Opera House) and Art Deco (Translux), but the grandiose Fox entrance remains to front a modern office block. Other sites include commerce on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, Baltimore and Portomac Railroad Station, faux castles such as Henderson's and Stewart's, the Corcoran School of Art, and many Victorian vistas of Washington from the top of the Capitol and Washington Monument.
