The National Bank of Washington, Washington Branch is an historic bank building, located at 301 7th St., Northwest, Washington, D.C.
It was built in 1888. It was a work of James G. Hill and Daniel J. Macarty.
It was documented by the Historic American Buildings Survey.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 for its architecture, which is Romanesque, Richardsonian Romanesque, and other.
A PNC Bank branch, located at 301 7th Street, N.W., (between Indiana Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.), in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The office of the Embassy of Argentina's naval attaché is located on the second floor; entrance to the Argentine Naval Attaché Building is located at 630 Indiana Avenue, N.W., on the north side of the bank.
Built in 1889 by Daniel J. Macarty, the marble and granite, three-story, Richardsonian Romanesque bank was designed by prominent architect James G. Hill. From 1889 to 1954, the building served as headquarters of the National Bank of Washington – founded in 1809, dissolved in 1990. After the main office was moved to 621 14th Street, N.W., the building was known as the Washington Office of the National Bank of Washington. From 1990 to 2005, the building served as a branch of Riggs Bank. The current owner resulted from the merger of Riggs Bank and PNC Financial Services.

1999 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: A week at a timeshare in Gordonsville, VA, two weeks in Tennessee, which included attending my first Fan Fair country music festival, and family visits to North Carolina and Florida.
