As mentioned before, my quest for photos of Silver Spring in the 80's and 90's has gotten off to a slow start, but here is what I have so far. Some of these photos have been culled from various websites and others were submissions. I'll keep looking to add to the collection and will post them as I come across new ones. Again, if you have any photos, especially those highlighting urban blight, I can use anything you've got!
- The Harry Potter launch party on Ellsworth Drive, ur I mean "Diagon Alley", tonight is only the second biggest celebration in the U.S., the largest being held at Border's NYC store. I do want to see this, but I'm still convinced that the size of the event will attract those trying to spoil the ending, especially since said ending is now widely available on The Internets.
- The DrinkMore Water Grand Prix of Silver Spring will be held downtown on Sunday. Here's some photos of last year's race.
