Today for Not So Long Ago, GM stops by the little O St. commercial strip. Today there’s the English Rose Garden, Wingo’s, and Prince and Princess. But in 1993, it was what might be Vivian’s, Olympic Carry Out, and the Georgetown Shoe Hospital.
Because GM can’t know for sure what the name of the far left store is, he can’t find any information on it. It looks like it was a gift or clothing store.
GM knows that Wingo’s opened in 2001. GM’s not sure when the Olympic Take Out place closed. It appears to have been a Greek fast food joint (making it the second space to formerly house a Greek restaurant to be featured in Not So Long Ago). It’s funny to see the tree outside Wingo’s not covered in beads.
GM believes that the Georgetown Shoe Hospital, or some version of it, is now the cobbler that’s at 3147 Dumbarton Ave., right next to Big Planet Comics. The space on O St. where is was has been merged with Prince and Princess, a clothing store that occupies the corner of O and Wisconsin.
Finally, the O St. Studio, an exercise and physical therapy provider, appears not to have changed a lick since 1993.
