“Here’s a wonderful photo of an early Woodies delivery van parked at the loading ramp of the Woodies building downtown on 10th Street. For a history of Woodward & Lothrop, see here.”

    Then I hope you follow “Old Time DC” on facebook. One of my favs.

  • PW

    An electric vehicle to.boot.

  • Vered

    Always always always loved that facade, painted or not. Good choice.

    • DM

      Agree! Didn’t realize it had been painted so recently (I had just moved here in 2011) but original or not, it’s such a beautiful and iconic part of downtown.

    New mission: find an historical photo with a hawk in it.
