Photos From PoPville – Buildings from Today and Yesterday

PoPville flickr user rockcreek is always posting interesting buildings from around PoPville. I’ve always been intrigued by the Yellow House (above) at 614 T Street, NW.

Below is a bit of a peek into yesterday from 829 14th St, NW. He writes:

“Benny’s Rebel Room, 829 Fourteenth Street, NW in an undated, uncredited shot from the Post. On either side are the Californian Steak House (#831) and The Cocoon (#827).

These businesses closed between 1984 and 1986, as the city revoked their liquor licenses in an effort “clean up” the block. They were torn down in April 1986.”
