Thanks to the Christensen family for sharing this cool find:

“It’s from a childhood trip they took to DC from Iowa in 1934, and appears to be taken from the Capitol toward Union Station.”

Thanks to Stuart for sending:

“Got a call today from an order I placed on Sunday with Jos A Bank in Union Station. As their parent company announced bankruptcy and store closing plan the other day, they gave me a call to tell me my order has been moved to another store, and they are shortly closing their Union Station location. Sad to see the large number of store closures within Union Station.”
