Old Georgetown in Color: Parking

ParkingOriginal Photo courtesy of LOC.

This week on Old Georgetown in Color, GM visits a historic parking lot that stood where the Apple Store now is: Witherson’s at 1229 Wisconsin Ave.

This was an empty lot until the 1980s when the building that Apple tore down was built. The lot can be seen to be empty as late as when St. Elmo’s Fire was filmed (circa 1984).

This photo is from approximately 1950. Daily parking here was apparently 50 cents. Adjusted for inflation that would be about $4.50. So yeah, parking was cheaper.
