Thanks to Alexandra for sharing this awesomeness:

“DC friends, ever wonder what 18th Street looked like in the 1970s?

This is my dad in front of his print shop, Rainbow Press.

Plenty of posters calling for DC statehood on those walls!

It later became Rumba Cafe. Curious to see what it will be next.”

Magnificent. Here’s what Rumba Cafe looked like in it’s heyday:


2443 18th Street, NW

Rumba Cafe closed after almost 20 years in Adams Morgan back in 2017.  Stay tuned…
