Match your photos with ours

Today’s post comes from National Archives Office of Strategy and Communications staff writer Rob Crotty.

If you’ve ever been to Washington, DC, we have a challenge for you! We’ve found pictures of some of the famous monuments and buildings in the District, and we’d love to compare our old photos with some of your own.

Here’s what you do. Take a look at the photos below, and if you have any that match up, share them on our Facebook page by posting them as a wall post (we’ll put our photos up there, too). Next week we’ll post the photos that most closely match those from our collection.
