A GoDCer Shares His Photos of D.C.

GoDCer, and D.C. native, Tony was kind enough to share a number of photos from his youth. His father was a pilot with Eastern Airlines (remember them?) and a few of the shots are taken by him, flying into National Airport (not Reagan).

    Great photos. But look at the air quality back then in the days of leaded gasoline and before the Clean Air Act. That really takes me back (cough!)
