Georgetown Inn

This is N Street NW just before it intersects with Wisconsin from the west side. Seems as though the Georgetown Inn occupies the former real estate previously used by Fussels; plus some. It uses addresses 1306-1324 Wisconsin, leaving 1300 thru 1304 in place. 1300 (NW corner of Wisc and N Street, (pictured after far end of Fussels Shipping Department) is currently a greeting card and gift shop.

They were the first??

Per the old City Directory, Fussells Ice Cream "Was the first commercially sold ice cream made in America and it is still the standard." Touted as Real Cream Ice Cream. "Sold by all dealers who feature Pure Food Products" (the caps are in the advert). Address listed as 1306-1308-1310-1312 Wisconsin Ave. NW. The building with the ornate bracketed Victorian tall windows at the end of the street is on Wisconsin Ave.

Not my truck.

Does the new guy have to use the truck with solid rubber wheels?
