Pictured in 1996 at 1121 L Street is the Senator Hotel. Built in 1924, the landmark structure became famous in 1975 when Charles Manson family cult member Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme aimed a gun at then-President Gerald Ford after he emerged from the building and was approaching the state Capitol. The gun never fired.
