Photo Friday: Columbia Hospital for Women

My maternal grandfather, Louis Allen Shepherd, was born at Columbia Hospital for Women in Washington, DC on December 29, 1922. 
Here's a photo of the hospital, located at 2425 L Street NW, taken sometime between 1909 and 1932:

The building still stands and, having been renovated to house condos, is now known as the Columbia Residences:

According to Wikipedia, Al Gore, Duke Ellington and Katherine Heigl were also born here. Interesting!
