I’ve always enjoyed the ‘public’ art that is attached to this building, the neon man that once lived on top, the neon squiggle, and now the neon Obama ’08. The picture shown here comes from the files of the Commission of Fine Arts when looking at old DC firehouses and their alternative uses. If I was a better note taker, which many of you now realize that I’m not, (how I actually made it through grad school mystifies me) I would have had some clue as to when this photograph of an earlier look for the firehouse was taken. It is black and white because it is a photocopy of a photocopy.
And here is the building as it is today.Firehouse No 7

Fish Fry


For the second consecutive week, the BACA’s Youth Services Committee is sponsoring a Fish Fry tomorrow at Ebenezer Baptist Church, 46 Q Street, N.W., from 11:00 a.m. until they sell out of food. The proceeds from this event will assist in the implementation of a schedule of a series of activities that they intend to produce for youths in our community this summer.

If at all possible, please support this activity. Flyers have been circulated around the community, but I am trying to boost their promotional efforts via this electronic appeal to you.

If you have any questions or would like to place an order, please use the telephone numbers below.

We thank you in advance for your support!
