What the Helen of Troy is This? Vol. 6

DSCN7732, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

This isn’t a traditional “Helen of Troy” post but I’m truly confused by it. This is located on 18th Street in Adams Morgan. Is it possible that there was a business back in the day called Sterling? Was it related to jewelery or silver? I’ve never seen a name like this engraved in concrete above a window before. Any ideas?
