Downtown Lock Co. (or Downtown Lock Center, according to the awning – how stupid does a business have to be to not decide on its own name?). Another sign calls it the Downtown Lock & Electric Co. But most intriguing is the oldest and largest sign, which has a Lionel Trains subheading. How cool would it be to have a shop that sells electric trains? What does it say about us that this business can’t survive? 1324 14th St NW, Washington, DC.
