Pistols and Pages: 1937

Pistols and Pages: 1937

Harry C. Feldstone, seller of antiques, weapons and books, 1218 Sixth Street N.W., Washington, D.C.. Nice old store photo with pistols hanging in the window taken in 1937 by photographer John Vachon. FSA / OWI Photograph Collection. LOC original medium: 35 mm nitrate negative.


The next door neighbor, R. Beresford, Printer, was at 523 7th Street, which is near D Street, NW. Since the picture was taken in November 1937 I was just two years old.



You have posted a photograph of my father, Harry C. Feldstone. I was 1 or 2 years old at the time. I wonder where the information about the address came from. As far as I know his store was on D Street near 7th (NW).

Shortly after the photograph was taken our family moved to a store and apartment on Wisconsin Ave. Several years later dad purchase another building on Wisconsin where he stayed (apartment above the store) until he died in 1951.



We got the address from here: http://www.dtc.umn.edu/~reedsj/codebooks.txt.

But I think you might be right about the address of this photo. It appears as though there is a number on the door where he is standing indicating 667 or 607.
