    Awesome high-res photo of a Washington DC sporting goods shop front window in 1922.

    Note the Daisy air rifle with bayonet, revolvers and Winchester M1906 pump 22 from left to right...

    I have to admit, a Daisy with a bayonet....times have changed.

    1303 F Street ... about 2 blocks east of the White House. Unimaginable that such a store front would exist in the area today ...

    Here's another picture - farther back (love the parked vehicles). 1920 (2 years earlier). http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wNvjaxqA2Ms/Us6oQK81vxI/AAAAAAAAIYU/SENI3szVh-M/s1600/30445v.jpg

    And here is a photo of what this has become today (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dLefkKP7bIg/Us6oQTnOtGI/AAAAAAAAIYc/QMqBhPUdWAI/s1600/Screen+Shot+2014-01-09+at+8.45.12+AM.png).

    I see they knew how to park cars back then. :D



    Gun, rifling, cartridge, ballistic tables, powder.

    So....the three pistols center at bottom of window. What do we have there? Smith (or copy) revolver in center, on the right a Browning 1903? And on the left...would that be a Mauser 1910 or 1914? And what is 'US' on the boxes they're sitting on? A distributor name like 'FIE'? Interesting stuff looking at the cool stuff they had back then!

    One has to wonder if the customers of that Grill know that they used to sell "evil" guns where they now eat.

    My Winchester '06 is from 1924. Interesting to see the band on the stock. Wonder if any of those have survived?
