Today’s Top 5

Winter front

The pre 1925 Chevrolet sedan (no frame horns) sports a winter front. On cold days the center section could be rolled down and held in place by the two straps at the bottom. The whole affair is lined with wool and the outside is oilcloth. Much smarter than a piece of cardboard.

Metro Stop

In the 70's the Farragut West metro station was established underneath this building servicing the blue and orange lines..( and now silver as well). I use it often to get to my office a block east of there.

"Anodyne architecture"

Looks like a high-rise factory to me.
