the circle theatre, originally uploaded by a nameless yeast.

A program ca. 1984 from the late, lamented Circle Theatre, now the site of an office building, not a parking garage as the link says. In the ’80’s, the stretch of Pennsylvania Avenue that housed The Circle also had a bar (the 21st Amendment, being near 21st Street NW), a science-fiction bookstore and a liquor store. That entire block is gone. View large.

He turned one knob, then another. Then he waited a second. There it was — the program with all his little television friends on it! And now came the big jolly clown!

The clown told about the new baby elephant in the circus. He sang a funny song. It was a wonderful program.

Zippy was getting hungry again.

from Zippy the Chimp, 1953
