On This Day: Columbia Heights on October 3, 1949

Image of 16 and Harvard Street NW from 1949

Columbia Heights was a very different place 65 years ago, but the view of the National Baptist Memorial Church near 16th and Harvard Streets NW hasn’t changed all that much. Love the 1940s buses streetcars and taxicab!
