From Pleasure Gardens to Streetcars: A Photographic History of H Street NE

Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 6:30 p.m.

Now known for its growing bar and restaurant scene and increasingly expensive housing, the H Street NE neighborhood was once home to working class Irish, Lebanese, Greek, and Jewish immigrants.

Local historian Sarah Shoenfeld will present a slide show depicting H Street's lively past, from its early development as a transportation link between D.C. and Maryland to circus parades, Louie Kavakos's night club at 8th and H, and the original Granville Moore.
