Currently, The now closed Latham Hotel and its adjoining restaurant, Michel Richard’s Citronelle, are liquidating all of their assets (they will be doing so for the next 3 weeks).
The location is in Georgetown and I think people will find the sale interesting. As they unload a hotel’s worth of items, some curious things are going up for sale. Amongst the silverware, artwork, furniture, and statuary there was this:
A 300 pound bronze-cast plaque.
It is being sold-off…One of the ladies suggested purchasing it for its scrap value…Still no one knows who the image depicts.
Aside from what is seen here, there are no maker’s marks at all on the front or the back. Can anyone identify this person?”
Ed. Note: Obviously, free PoPville t-shirt for the first one to get the identity right.
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
“I came upon this after this happened – don’t know the cause. I heard from people on Twitter that the cyclist walked to the ambulance on his own power. Irony: the person who appears to be the driver is wearing hospital scrubs.”
“My garden [Mt. Pleasant] is finally producing produce – peppers, edamame, lots of cucumbers, the last of the peas. And tomatoes! And bonus volunteer sunflowers. The Brandywine tomato deserved a photo of its own.”
If you have a great haul, beautiful tomato or something like that, send an email and a couple photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail with your neighborhood and garden haul in the subject line and I’ll pick a few winners a week (free PoPville t-shirt or tote bag.)
