BLAINE_970814_01.JPG: Blaine House
The Blaine House was completed in 1881 and it served as the house of Republican James Blaine. Blaine had run for President a few times but settled for Speaker of the House and Senator from Maine. Blaine and his family lived here for three years before moving along. In 1901, George Westinghouse, the inventor of the air brake and the founder of the Westinghouse company, purchased the house and lived here until 1914.
Wikipedia Description: James G. Blaine Mansion
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The James G. Blaine Mansion, is an historic house, located at 2000 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C. in the Dupont Circle neighborhood.
The Queen Anne style house was built in 1881, designed of architect John Fraser. It's the only surviving example of large mansions built during the late 1800s that once ringed Dupont Circle.
It was the residence of Republican politician James G. Blaine. George Westinghouse bought the home in 1901, and resided there until his death in 1914.
In recent years, the Blaine Mansion has been used for commercial purposes. The current owner, lawyer John R. Phillips, hired Eichberg Construction to renovate the property which includes adding an underground parking deck, adjoining six-story residential building, and Italian restaurant. The renovation and allied construction projects cost an estimated $20 million.
The Blaine Mansion is a contributing property to the Dupont Circle Historic District, and Massachusetts Avenue Historic District.

1997 photos: Since 1984, I've lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
From 1981 to 2002, photos were taken using a Pentax ME Super camera.
From 1989 to 2002, I was doing all pictures as prints (instead of slides which I had grown up on).
In 1997, at the age of 40, my photo obsession began and I started taking thousands of photos per year.
In September, 2002, I switched to digital cameras and the number of photos exploded.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Trips this year: North Carolina (Dad), Florida (Mom), using a time share in Arkansas to visit Civil War sites in Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Civil War became my excuse to see places I'd never been to in my life and it was a great motivator for 20 years or so.
