The old Garfinkel's department store

Now a Borders book store. I tried so hard to get the Garfinkel name above the awning, but simply couldn't manage much of it. (Of course, this was in sub-zero temperatures with a wind chill factor that made it the coldest day I can ever remember experiencing in my life.) Garfinkel's was a Washington institution for ages and is still a stunning building.

other sizes: small medium original auto

My grandmother loved Garfinkel's she was on tv when they closed. She still has new clothes with tags on them from that store

My Great Aunt Catherine Misner worked at Garfinkles late 1930's to around 1950.
