Via Shorpy: Washington, D.C., circa 1925

Some of my favorite doors can be found on Shorpy...


Washington, D.C., circa 1925. "The toy shop, 1207 New York Avenue." The former Apolonia Stuntz store (seen earlier on Shorpy here and here) where Abraham Lincoln is said to have bought toys for his son Tad, now the Lee Lung First-Class Laundry ("Bosom 6¢"). A scene so sun-dappled and languid, it's making us ... very ... sleepy. National Photo Company Collection glass negative. View full size.
