The Washington Post reported:

“Tysean Hoffman, of Alexandria, said the group of marchers numbered about 50 and began to march from Meridian Hill Park (also known as Malcolm X Park) toward the Third District police station and throughout Northwest Washington.

Some marchers lit fireworks, turned over trash cans and may have lit at least one trash can on fire, Hoffman said. But there was no damage to property and the marchers were otherwise peaceful.”

Thanks to Victoria for sending: ” I found this empty can of sardines from the old Sea Lion canning factory in Lubec, Maine, which closed a decade ago. From the look of the closing mechanism I’m guessing it’s from the forties. Neat!”

If you have a photo of a neat find from your house or place of work please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks. Please let me know where/what neighborhood you found it in too. Thanks.
