History photo: Mt. Pleasant Banjo & Mandolin Club from the 1880s

Love these old history photos: this one was found by Flickr user Rock Creek from the Washington Star newspaper. The newspaper was from 1935 but the photo is from the 1880s. The Star went out of business in 1981.

I have a feeling this club would have a much younger membership today.

As you may recall, Mt. Pleasant back in the day stretched to 14th Street -- see the People's Drug Store at 14th and Irving, for example.
