Welcome to Wymer's DC!

This site hosts an interactive map which places the thousands of historic images of John P. Wymer onto Google Street View. With this tool, users are able to immerse themselves in 1950s Washington, D.C. and picture the city as they have never seen it before.

The website is powered by FlipKit, new open-source software that overlays image suites onto a live Google Street View Map. This site was created as a way to contextually view the Wymer Photograph Collection and to help people connect with the rich history of the nation's capital.

Click on a highlighted area in the map to begin.
Please note, the map interface is not yet mobile-optimized.
