There’s so much more to Washington, DC than granite and limestone.
Discover a side of our nation’s capital that goes beyond the carefully manicured landmarks, where ruins become de facto monuments to a past we’ve almost forgotten—a working class past of great schemes and shuttered dreams, a city of immigrants, transplants, and others whose names are long lost, but whose legacy can be traced through DC’s crumbling corners. Abandoned Washington DC
collects more than 350 striking images of decay and devastation, paired with thought-provoking essays detailing an alternate, abandoned—but no less accurate—history of the capital city.
