A very late response to NCSRFSH. I wonder if the guitarist to whom you refer was Jimmy Nalls.

Don't have that, but I could take pictures of it in its current state. It's still very much there and doing business as a mall. It's just a strip mall now, not an interior mall.

I used to hang out there quite a bit in the mid-'70s when I attended Fort Hunt High School (from which I graduated).

The park has been used for many things over the years, including defending Washi ...

I used to go to Ft. McNair with my dad in the '60s. He golfed there. In the picture you posted we can see golfers between us and the War College building.

Chuck Leven's Washington Music Center was a major music store, located in downtown DC until the riots in '68, at which point they moved out to Wheaton.

That was definitely Fairlington Elementary. I went there for kindergarten, half of first grade and all of 2nd-6th. The main building is pretty old. I'm guessing it was made in the '40s along with t ...
