The Cairo [#196] *PRINT ONLY

Regular price $30.00 $0.00

The Cairo building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood was once a luxurious hotel, a center of high society and, at one time, a complete dump filled with drug dealers.

Immerse yourself in its Wikipedia page to learn how this 164 ft “residential skyscraper” caused the legislation that limits the heights in the city (many people believe it was because of the Washington monument). Regardless, The Cairo has one of the best views in town. It was from there I took a reference for this other postcard.

Next time you’re close to Q Street, stop by and admire the gargoyles above the entrance and griffins on the cornices.


POSTCARDS are 5.47x4.21" printed on recycled matte paper. The postcards come in a clear sleeve and they are shipped in a paper envelope. We use First-Class Mail, unless with another item.

PRINTS are 8x10", 11x14" or 16x20". Open edition printed with professional archival inks on acid-free, 100% cotton rag for long term durability (museum-quality giclée). The prints are packaged in a protective sleeve with a sturdy backing board in a rigid kraft mailer, or rolled in a tube. We care about the environment, so we ship using recycled or reused materials whenever possible.
