The Washington Hotel was built around 1871 at the South East corner of 1st and L Streets.  An Annex to the hotel was completed in 1903.  It became the Palace Hotel in August 1914.  It was sold to Mallys in April 1916, and eventually became the Mallys Annex (Mallys was located between J and K streets on the south side of 1st).

The hotel was eventually torn down in May of 1941, apparently catching fire about a week after demolition began.

About 1908

About 1910.  Note that the balcony has been removed and the 3rd window from the right is now even with the others.  It was presumably a door to the balcony earlier.
