2010 New Year and 2010 P Street N.W. Washington D.C.

The above photo is a picture of our daughter Lorelei sitting on my motorcycle on the sidewalk in front of 2010 P St.N.W. Washington D.C. in the year 1969. She was three years old at that time.
Happy New Year 2010. That was also our address for four years in Washington, D.C. from 1967 to 1971. We lived near Dupont Circle at 2010 P Street N.W. Washington, D.C.

At that time that neighborhood was a good place to be. Probably still is. I know we lived in a large top floor apartment over Excello Cleaners. It was the only apartment above the cleaners.

There is now a Subway sandwich shop where the Excello Cleaners used to be. Next door was a liquor store and across the street was a Safeway Grocery Store. Next to the liquor store was a really nice Chinese restaurant called the Nanking. On the other side of us was a small mom and pop drugstore and on that corner was a High's Dairy small grocery store. On the corner of 20th and P St. was another drug store that later became Buffalo Bill's carryout and then finally a second hand bookstore called Second Story Books.

I have always liked that number 2010. We pronounced it 20 ten.
