At the National Building Museum

November 19, 2016 - February 12, 2017at the National Building Museum

DISTRICT II is a poetic visual essay exploring the changing streetscape of downtown Washington in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s through the urban street photography of Chris Earnshaw, Joseph Mills, and the late Bill Barrett.

Organized by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. and presented in partnership at the National Building Museum, DISTRICT II explores several decades of architectural and social change in the heart of the Nation’s Capital, from the majesty of the McGill building, to storefronts exclaiming TOPLESS GO GO, to sleeping street denizens and the aching beauty of respectable rooming houses turned less-so flophouses slated for the wrecking ball.
