Streetcars on D.C. memory lane
It's a shame that the D.C. City Council has, for now, decided against reviving streetcars.
To be honest, I probably wouldn't get to use the streetcars that much these days, but they bring back fond memories of when I was a kid in the 1950s and early 1960s living in Bethesda and then a high school student in the late 1960s. I remember riding the streetcars to the National Theater when my mom took my sister and me to see "The Music Man."
Here are a few other fond DC area memories:
Butter brickle ice cream cones at High's
People's Drug Stores
Hot Shoppes where you could take your high school date for onion rings and root beer
Griffith Stadium (ratty firetrap)
Please let me know yours.
