Flophouses and signs advertising “TOPLESS GO GO” might give residents and tourists pause in Downtown D.C. today, but in the middle of 1900s they were, well, common. The District has changed so much in the last decade, it’s easy to forget how the landscape has altered in the last century. Luckily there are images and people to remind us.

We talk with the curator and one of the photographers about the project.
