Sorry our posts are so short. We spent the bulk of the holidays moving our site to better hosting (which hopefully you notice – faster page loads). We’ll make sure to crank out some good ones this weekend. Oh, by the way … tomorrow is our one-year anniversary!

In the meantime, here’s a cool photo we dug up on Shorpy.

This is a Texaco somewhere in the Washington area. The Hydraulic-Press Brick Company in the back was located somewhere on Alexandria Pike.

    I’m not absolutely sure of this but there was a snack distribution company called Irvin Payne which I remember from seeing trucks drive around NOVA from 60’s to the 80’s. I wish I could figure out where Alexandria Pike was. I grew up in Alexandria from ’64 on.
