With photos, news clippings, maps, and other historical documents included, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has created a brand new online photo archive, called DDOT Back in Time, perfect for browsing through if interested in taking a glimpse at the past of the nation’s capital.

Currently, there are over 2,000 images featured with many dating back to the early 1900s. There are a total of 17 collections, ranging in topics from pedestrians and cyclists to traffic signs to aerial photographs.

More photos are still expected to be added to the archive.
