Explosion 212 13th St NW

From the Washington Post October 15, 1925:

Sign of the times

Nailed up to my office wall, a few feet away from me as I type, I have a duplicate of the Polarine sign(s) fastened to the brick wall, adjacent to the garage door opening! Unlike the examples in the photo, though, mine has seen the ravages of time!
