>Be right back!


Ad from 1950

I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve got a few things in the works.  Stay tuned.

A cabbie who grew up in Anacostia claimed that Jimmy Dean used to hang around the Westover gas station and entertain folks.  He also used to live somewhere in Westover.  The gas station used to be at the current site of the Post Office on Washington Blvd in the Westover section of Arlington.  Anyone know the story?

UPDATE:  Jimmy Dean lived at 1708 N. Roosevelt St. in East Falls Church in 1955.  This was right around the time he was heading to the big time.
