Letters to the Editor
the early 1920s until the mid- 1950s, my grandmother made her home at
the intersection of N.W. 11th Street and Shartel Avenue. In the
mid-1950s, she bought a new home in the 400 block of N.W. 43rd. As a
child, I sometimes spent the night at her homes — as a very young boy on
Shartel and later on N.W. 43rd Street.
