Harris & Ewing Photographic Studio is an historic structure located in downtown Washington, D.C. It was built in 1924 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

History[edit]

The building housed Harris & Ewing, which in the early 20th century was the largest news photo service in the United States.[2] They also served as the official White House photographer and the city's most noted portrait photographers from 1905 to 1955.[2] This building with its Italian Renaissance Revival limestone façade replaced an earlier building built by Harris & Ewing in 1905. It was designed by the architectural firm of Sonnemann & Justement.[2]

Today the building houses advertising agency Don Schaaf & Friends, Inc. (ds+f).
