More MVT images from decades past

Yesterday we noted that the Hidden Washington DC Flickr stream had several photos of the lost Steuart Auto Company building. The collection also had several other clues to the neighborhoods past.

The Executive Auto Detailers shop at 617 K Street was once D.C. Cab (albeit not the depot from the 1983 movie of the same name).

Some of you may remember the 6th & K Automart sign which remained in the neighborhood until being dismantled in November 2008.

    I SOOOOO miss the 6th & K Auto Market sign! I wish it would’ve been repurposed into public, art for the Triangle! AV was a dive, but as one with Italian blood in me, I miss it too. From what I had, the food was pretty damn good – and the place looked like a scene from an old mafia movie. The neon ROCKED, I really miss that too.

    great post, I think I’ve seen pictures of L St between 4th and 5th, it used to be an entire block of row houses.
