W.T. Weaver

The store was renovated into a Bennetton store in the late 1980s or early 90s. There is still a small second floor showroom for architectural hardware, fittings and such operated by W.T. Weaver, in keeping with the definition of "hardware."

More help!

This photo is another example of Shorpy assisting me in my model railroading. I wondered whether or not chain link fencing would be appropriate for the era of my layout (set in 1941). Well, looky there -- chain link fence gates in the back of the truck. And 15 years before "my" time.

Must be upstairs

1208

It appears that 1208 has been replaced (as well as two buildings across the street). The alley is in the same spot and the turreted building up the street is unchanged except for a lick of paint..

Georgetown

The neighborhood has changed a bit, but a W.T. Weaver & Sons sign still hangs on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown at what appears to be the same location judging from the buildings across the street.
