From an email:
“Century-Old Photo Negatives Discovered, Depicting Taft Inauguration, Newly-Constructed Wilson Building, and Historic Blizzard
Through its ongoing effort to highlight elements of the history of the District government and its headquarters, the Council has discovered a cache of 108-year-old photo negatives featuring unique local subject matter.
Specifically, the 31 images constitute a historic triple-play in terms of their content, in that they depict:
· The Inaugural Parade of William Howard Taft as the 27th President on March 4, 1909
· The District (now Wilson) Building just months after its dedication
· A historic blizzard so bad that the Presidential Oath was extraordinarily moved indoors
Photos drawn from these negatives, perhaps the first to see the light of day in a century, are on display in the Ground Floor Atrium of the Wilson Building. For full details on the exhibit, please see below. (more…)
