Phari’s Photos – Snow’s Court, Foggy Bottom

Photos and words by @Pharipedia. Phari is one of my favorite photographers who contributes to our Instagram. He’s volunteered to share a bit more with us from his adventures around town. Phari lives on Capitol Hill.

“Originally founded in 1858 by C. A. Snow, the publisher of the National Intelligencer (DC’s first newspaper which ran from 1800 to 1870), Snow’s Court is one of the original alley dwellings in the district. In its earlier years, the alley was home to Irish immigrants, wounded Union soliders, and freed African-Americans who moved to DC at the end of the Civil War. Today, these renovated rowhouses are a reminder of DC’s rich history. The alley is located between 25th and 26th Streets NW, south of K St. NW, near GWU.”
