Hains Point, Washington D.C.

Here's an old aerial photograph of Southeast Washington D.C., featuring Hains Point and its (then)golf course in the center, and the National War College on the right. The Washington Monument is at the top.
The picture was taken in 1935, when I was a mere one year old. After World War II, when I was 11 years old, and my brother was about 9, our Dad, who was then teaching at the War College, would drop us both at the golf course to hack our way around for a few hours while he entertained the military students.

I fear I learned little about the finer points of golf, but I did find a few lost golf balls and enjoyed the nice river views.

Good times.
