More about the photo maps

I was adding some more photographers to my maps (two more New York and one more DC), and I was re-thinking the addresses of some of the DC photographers. If I take as legitimate the KC Woodly studio address as ” 181 Pennsylvania Avenue, between 17th and 18th Streets”, then there was another studio that I had, Henry Ulke, at 278 Pennsylvania Avenue, that would make much more sense being between 18th and 19th Streets instead of more-or-less on the grounds of the US Capitol. I’ll have to do some research and see when the addresses on Pennsylvania Avenue stopped being split east/west of 16th Street. My guess is that it was sometime shortly after the Civil War, if my CDVs are anything to go by.
