Park View Playground in 1938

I’ve been looking for a good photo of the old Park View Playground for a while now, and finally I’ve found one. While the scan below isn’t the best, at least I now know of another image I need a good scan of (future goal).

The photo dates to August 26, 1938, and shows the playground from the school. Princeton Place is in the background. This photo was taken a mere six years after the field house was built and wading pool installed. It also shows swings along Warder Street, teeter totters along Princeton to the east of the field house, and I believe a tennis court to the west of the field house.Park View playground 8 26 1938(Image: Star Collection, D.C.
