I recently discovered this, which is perhaps my favorite blog in the world right now. Not only do the author/founder Tom and his cohort consistently dig up (and beautifully digitize) unbelievable relics of Our Nation’s Capital, but their commitment to cultural and historical geographies of the District and the outlying extremities is unparalleled. Every neighborhood has tagged posts that bear its name, not just the ones that tourists sneak through before retreating. It’s even given rise to a similar site for Baltimore, so fans of the charm city (this writer included) can get lost in that one, too.
Actual updates coming soon. It’s been quite a busy September around here.
