Capturing City Signs Before They Vanish Forever


Thanks to a reader for a heads up on this one:

“I think you might have featured this particular sign before, but a raze permit has been applied for for the building, so I thought you might want to re-feature the Georgetown Silversmith & Plating sign on the building at 2335 Champlain St., NW in Adams Morgan (across the street from the alley entrance to the parking garage under the Lofts). They are razing this cool old building (just the small one) to build what will surely be dubbed “luxury” apartments.”
