Just a Street Scene in D.C.

By April 25, 2008General

GFHerald%20Box%206.jpgThe inset photo (larger format here) is of an early evening street scene in Washington, D.C., the northwest corner of 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NW.

The blue newspaper box in the foreground? It belongs to the Grand Forks Herald, from Grand Forks, North Dakota, which just happened to employ this blogger in the early 1990s.

No idea what it’s doing in Washington.

But it needs to be refilled.

  • Probably just excess inventory the GFH resold and the buyer hasn’t bothered to repaint…

    I went to the University of North Dakota and that box is less than a block away from my apartment. I had no idea it was there. Thanks for the heads up. I miss Doreen Yellowbird’s ultra-liberal rants.

    That is great!! I wonder how it happened. That machine has a faceplate from the 1990’s.
