Highway History

An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue Temperance 2 Statue

Right behind "Temperance" is the National Bank of Washington. A huge banner on top of the building and a small sign near the door tell you this is Washington's Oldest Bank. It was organized in 1809.

The entwined fish of "Temperance" enhance the statue's reputation at the ugliest in the city.
