Washington, DC


Lower level food court 50 Massachusetts Ave, NW

It’s been a while since I’ve stopped by Union Station, didn’t realize the Bojangles closed. There was great excitement when we first learned Bojangles was coming back in 2010 (a lifetime ago, a question we asked in that post “Do you think anything will ever go into the old movie theater space?”)

We will also be conducting a voter registration drive during the protest.”

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.”
