This one melts my heart like butter, I don't mind saying it.

It's so delicious that it could have been used for an Edwardian postcard, only thing missing is trolley-trams and people with umbrellas. And here it was, I thought D.C. was choked in the gray architecture of government and slums, boy was I wrong!

Thanks again StormShadow. :cheers:

Yikes, if that's what people think of DC, I think a national PR campaign is in order!

WOW! I though Baltimore was beautiful. Those embassies just take the cake! But the modern architecture in Baltimore is a lot better. I think the Italian embassy has purple marble columns on the front or some embassy did and it was very beautiful.

I love those old wartime photos of DC! It seems strange to look at now, seeing those white families living in those rowhouses.
