Inspired by my recent trip to the Tivoli Theatre, I found a fantastic book on lost buildings in DC.
Ranging from architectural treasures to the more mundane, James M. Goode’s treatise “Capital Losses” features beautiful old photographs and well-researched text. Some of the stories in here are classics and it’s well-worth a look.
I spent most of my lunch hour leafing through it at the downtown Barnes & Nobles, sighing over some spectacular visions of DC Victorian grandeur.
