The ’68 riots were a tragic and defining moment in our city’s history. Here’s a great then and now shot of 9th and U St. I think you’ll recognize the building in the middle, currently occupied by Dickson Wine Bar.

Army jeep containing soldiers on 9th Street with civilian car next to it. There is a sign over a storefront on the corner of the street which reads "SABIN'S 9TH & U RECORDS". Shows the northwest corner of the 9th and U Street (Scurlock Studio Records, ca. 1905-1994, Archives Center, National Museum of American History)
