Commenter Brian was in the ballpark with his guess that last week’s puzzle was a mason’s building. But Josh pinpointed the one we snapped—the House of the Temple, a Scottish Rite of Freemasonry building, at 16th and S streets, Northwest. We zoomed in on a small carving on the statue. Great job, Josh!
