Probably the Earliest Photo I Shot of H Street
This is picture of the 1000 block of H Street during the big snow storm that shut down much of the city for several days in 2003. While main roads like H Street were largely clear, side streets remained impassible for a long time. I remember that it snowed quickly and heavily. Believe it or not, the X2 was up and running, but I think the trains were down (at least for above ground stations).
I found this photo while I was going through some old files a friend sent me last night. Funny, I actually thought Ahmad's was gone by then.
Here's a photo of the same block in 2010. This was taken just before the Atlas Room opened. I can't believe it's been three years already. Check out all the construction and that orange "H." Many of those "H" planters were relocated to the Hyattsville Arts District, but you can still spot a few around the neighborhood. I think I can identify at least three in a one block radius of my house.
