Beautiful in Shaw - Independence Bank Shaw Clock
This series of posts will focus on something beautiful in Shaw - a particularly striking house, a beautiful garden, architectural elements, people, pets - whatever and wherever I (or any of you) find something that makes you smile. Feel free to send ideas (and photos!) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shaw is one of the only neighborhoods in Washington DC to have an old-fashioned street clock. There's one downtown, and one on Barracks Row over on the Hill. Ours, likely a gift from Independence Bank (since it's in front of the bank and their name is inscribed across the top...), shines brightly just north of the intersection of 9th and N Streets, NW. I always smile when I see it during the day, but it catches my eye so much more when it glows at night. What do you guys think about the clock?
