the Anacostia sign is back
After being off the facade of 1115/1117 Good Hope Road for over a year, the cursive "Anacostia" sign is back!
The sign is a landmark in the neighborhood, and helps define the area to all those coming down Good Hope and across the 11th Street Bridge.
And while the sign isn't the first one to grace the building...
Victory Grill, 1952. Ah, the days before 295.
nor was this the first location for the sign...
Anacostia Thrifty Liquor Store, 1205 Good Hope, 1947
...it is a welcome addition and adds a certain character to the intersection. A lighting ceremony is planned for Friday, November 7 at 6:30 pm.
