This week’s photograph was taken on Memorial Day, at General John A. Logan’s Circle, in Washington, DC.

General Logan is regarded as the most important figure in the movement to recognize Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day) as an official holiday.

Logan Circle itself is a very different place in 2015 than it was 20 years ago. Photos from present day and from the past below. Makes you think about what it’s like to be in a place where it seems there is no hope.
