Shown at the southwest corner of Seventh and K Streets is the Capital Hotel. In 1887, the 100-unit property underwent a 20,000 dollar rennovation that included marked expansion, giving the Capital a 100-foot frontage on K Street and 120-foot frontage on Seventh Streets. Although the postcard indicates a spelling of c-a-p-i-t-o-l, the business' spelling was c-a-p-i-t-a-l. Also visibile on the postcard are, far left, the hotel's Grill Room restaurant and, far right, the landmark Lavenson's Shoes.
