Thanks to John for sending from his 1889 Townhouse in Eastern Market:
“Found some interesting stuff behind the walls as we are adding some insulation. Apparently Garfinckel’s was the Nordstrom’s of the day at 1401 F Street NW. little 1982 fashion time capsule right there. And one whole page for men! Well, for some robes.
Also found what appears to be a porcelain painted plate for a dollhouse or something like that. Very intricate design!
Maybe some readers know some more Garfinckel’s history? The catalogue is dated Winter 1982.”
Closeups and a look inside the catalogue after the jump.
