In a recent fit of nostalgia, I poked around the inter-webs to see what traces could be found of establishments that were near and dear to an earlier self which I know now to be no more. Didn't find much, but I did find a few from D.C. days... Starting with Nathan's which was on the south-east corner of M & Wisconsin - now a bank-cum-coffee shop I am told... Both pictures were evidently taken around 2006-2007 - some ten years after my time warming the bar stools there. Interesting in the above that nobody was rolling-up their sleeves anymore and that slob-nation had already made inroads even here. Still, umbrella and blue top are medicine for my soul compared to what assails my eyes here daily. Pretty sure the fellow in the yellow OCBD was a fellow long time regular with whom I was once a nodding acquaintance. So if you have any internet or personal ephemera of places that occupied a special corner of your memories of times now gone by, please do post along with me here.
