Tenth Street


"Tenth Street, about the turn of the century, showing Ford's Theatre and, at the northeast corner of Tenth and E Streets, the first Medical School. The peculiar shape of the roof was due to an effort to secure as much daylight as possible for the anatomical department on the top floor. (Washingtoniana Collection, D.C. Public Library)" - A Medical Center: The Institutional Development of Medical Education in George Washington University by Elmer Luis Kayser
