 Washington Album A Pictorial History of the Nation’s Capital by Bob and Jane Levey
This fast-paced read is about tensions–especially the struggles between blacks and whites, and between the city and its suburbs. It describes how the city grew as a ug of national crises–the Civil War, World War I, the Great Depression, and WWII during which people scrambled for places to live. Boarding houses packed four or six in a room. This book is not about institutional Washington. It’s about the people of the capital–who they were and how they dealt with both everyday live and national crises. It’s about how their city has changed & is still changing today.

This book covers the early history of DC from 1776 to 1863.
