Sub Sta No. 10

On the *right* we have Substation 10, belonging to the Potomac Electric Power Company. PEPCO is still the main purveyor of electricity in D.C.

Just the same, but uglier

Classic

The front of that 1936 Packard 120 is classic —- at least to this long time driver who first took to the road in a similar vehicle. A powerful, smooth-riding machine, it was the manufacture’s best seller. Not immune to parking restrictions, however.

Lovely remembrance of things past

Incredibly clean and uncluttered by trash, garbage cans or bins, old furniture, etc. Lovely picture!!
