An Old-Fashioned Fourth

4th of July photo

In the 1930s-40s the parade route was along Carroll Avenue, through the business district, then across the DC line, along Carroll Street, then down 4th Street, NW to the historic Takoma Theater. So I suspect the house is somewhere along Carroll in Takoma Park, MD.

Takoma Park

I lived in Takoma Park until recently, and I think it will be difficult to place this house because most of the homes in the area are just like this. However, the area has not changed much at all and the old homes are still around, so who knows. Lots of trees. Takoma Park is often referred to as the Berkeley of the East. The lovable hippies who live there now aren't big on change.

[The address on the house looks like 200. And everyone seems ready for a parade to go by, so it must have been a main thoroughfare. - Dave]

Happy Fourth to you guys

Happy Fourth to you guys at Shorpy.

[Thanks, Ron! - Dave]
