Description

View of Washington, D.C., 1921 / drawn & published by William Olsen.

This bird’s-eye view print of Washington, DC was drawn and published by William Olsen in 1921. Our nation’s capital city was first organized in the late 1700's along the Potomac River. Washington DC was a growing capital city in the early 1900's, as manufacturing and business opportunities emerged.

Thousands of new war-effort workers swelled the city during World War I and rows of temporary factories lined The Mall. Race riots following the war slowed the city’s growth. Washington’s population reached 437,500 in 1920.

The illustration from above the Capitol Building, looking north west, shows the government buildings, labeled streets and railroad routes.
