A HISTORY OF U STREET THROUGH PICTURES

I had never ventured further than the National Mall or Chinatown whenever I would come to Washington DC.

I never thought of going to any other section of the city.

I realize by doing my latest 30 Plus Teams Tour just how much history there was going on in other areas, especially U Street .

It was known as “Black Broadway ” back in the day because black people weren’t allowed to perform anywhere in town.

As I walked through this vibrant neighborhood , I saw just what I had been missing by skipping this neighborhood .

Enjoy the history through the pictures and the murals.

PICTURES FROM  MY VISIT TO THE MASSACHUSETTS STATES HOUSE

Before I  got sick, I took a visit the Massachusetts  State  House .

This is the “the new” statehouse ,  as the old State House, which is located in the Financial  District of Boston on State Street ,  has remnants of  Massachusetts  before it was one of the 13 colonies.

There is no trace of Great Britain  in this statehouse except the portraits of all those colonial governor’s of Massachusetts . 

Enjoy the pictures from my day at the State House  and get to know some of the history  of  the  Commonwealth  of  Massachusetts .
