We love getting stuff like this from readers. Here’s the email we received last week from a GoDCer.
Dear Ghosts of DC:I just uploaded a film to Youtube that I made in ’91 that documents some vintage DC street scenes and urban storefronts:I’d describe it as an experimental travelogue that’s maybe a bit too arty for it’s own good, but nevertheless captures some Ghosts of DC:tracking shot of northside 900 block F Street NW, including the Dor-Ne Corset Shoppe
The Wiz Records on F Street
Fort Stevens Liquor Store on upper Georgia Ave.
Melody Records on Dupont Circle
Globe postersMy video originally aired on the local PBS station WETA-TV, but has been sitting in my “basement archives” for 20 years. BTW, I’m the guy who made the cult-documentary HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT.Feel free to post the Youtube link. I’ve included a few stills to use on your website.Regards,John
