1929–1930, Harry E. Hunter. Northwest corner of 11th St. and L Ave. N.W.

A two-story brick building is clothed in elements of the English Gothic image that was often recalled for schools. Leaded glass windows appear above the principal entrance. Within the lobby are murals with the theme of “Transportation.” These were painted by William Henning in 1934–1935.
