Old Washington D.C. Postcards from the 1930's - 1940's

Found some old postcards of Washington DC. Not sure of the actual time. I'm guessing these are from the 1930's or 1940's based on the automobiles in some of the postcards. Pretty cool scenes of the Nation's Capital.

For a nice slide show, just click on any image and if anyone has thoughts or memories, please share them in the comments. Thanks!

Thank you for sharing these, Bill. My parents traveled to DC when they were courting, and I'm sure these are some of the postcards they could have seen.
