Georgetown (November 15, 2019)
We were admiring the front of this building when Christian Zapatka, whose architecture firm occupies the building, happened to come out on his way to an appointment. http://www.christianzapatka.com Christian told us that the front of the building had been designed and added in the Bauhaus style in 1940. Previously, it had the same traditional front of the adjacent buildings.
Another brick building we liked was this garage with its stable doors.
Pumpkins and squashes are everywhere at this time of the year.
They don’t provide the only color.
We loved this old fashioned bike
A popular Georgetown attraction is Georgetown Cupcakes. It was founded by two sisters and quickly became a sensation with its own reality television series. They have since expanded their business to a number of locations throughout the United States. When they first opened, it wasn’t uncommon to see lines out the door and up the street.
At the heart of Georgetown, on the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street, is the historic Farmers and Mechanics Bank building. Built between 1921 and 1922, the building is distinguished by its gold leaf dome and neoclassical facade.
Another historic Georgetown building on M Street is this Italianate brick market. Built in 1865, it was recently occupied by Dean & Deluca, an upscale food market.
We loved this graceful archway
There’s a whole world out there, people. Look up from your phones!
