Re: [MPD-5D] Vintage Video of a DC Streetcar in Operations (c.1956-57)
- How interesting! I felt like I was riding down Rhode Island Avenue. As a native of Brookland, I remember the big trees on Rhode Island Ave.with wide sidewalks. I also remember walking over the T St bridge to go to McKinley. Speaking of police, the police Pct. #12 was housed on Rhode Island Avenue where the MPD Youth Division is now housed. That was our neighborhood police precinct prior to 5D on Bladensburg Rd.Carol FlemingFrom: brian.ions <brian.ions@...>

Questions (off hours, of course)... Are there any MPD patrol cars in this video -- and where (by time indicator).
Is that a MPD (gray/blue shirt) footman crossing RI Avenue at exactly
4:00 minute mark?
Hat tip to a 5D area resident for posting this terrific YouTube clip on
the Eckington Listserv yesterday...
(MPD, just for fun... today.)
Available vehicle comparison photo evidence here...
