The smog is less today with newer cars even with far more people and cars, now if Democrats would stop illegals from entering the US and cut way down on legal immigration we don't need , we can keep it just the way it is . Instead of making our lives far worse as they lie about how we need far more illegals sneaking in and public charges they need to really make some more smog they can lie and try to blame on Trump 20 years from now instead of fixing it today

What's wrong with taking care of the US people. ITS OUR COUNTRY !

The photo with the Grants store is a shopping center on West Broad Street in Falls Church, VA. Just to the right, out of line of sight of a photo, was a Dart Drug Store. It is now a Staples. Just west of this shopping center and across a local street is another shopping center with a Giant Food.

On the https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/maps/aerial-photography website the NADA building is in the 1976 image, along with several other large buildings right next to the Government communications tower. One of those buildings, which appears to be where the Doubletree, is in the 1972 photo. So I would suggest this photo is from the very late 60's.

Mr John Koons Sr. died young in 1978 at the age of 59 , he opened Koons Ford in 1964. Koons SR was one of the top Shelby GT dealers in the US .

John Koons Jr sold out in the early 90s to his brother after having financial problems, he owned a good number of dealerships and that was when the Keating Savings and Loan scandal occurred hurting many business people when customers could not get loans , it was not a time for overexpansion .

The Keating Five - Four SHOCKER ! DEMOCRAT senators and one RINO slippery eels . IN good conscience two of them one (D) one (R) were all American real US military hero's before they got into contact with other slippery eels in politics

My dad bought suits for work from the Tysons Mall Raleigh's store in 1970's. I was a little guy and always begged to visit the aviary section at Tysons with all the birds.

1968 looks about right for the date - Women's hairstyles, wearing white gloves, years of the cars in the photo.

I always smile when I see the top photo, not because of the tornado of course, but because my eye is always drawn to the People's sign. People's was my first job out of high school 30 years ago, albeit it was the People's at RT 50/Gallows Rd. Good times. Good memories. The management of that store put a lot of faith in the 18 year old me! I learned a lot about responsibility, integrity and a good work ethic while working there. I wish I could thank them all.

Don't think buses back then had air brakes. Stick shift transmissions, drivers smoked while driving and life was good.

There seems to be something missing.

In the early 1980s I worked with a woman named Blevins. I remember her telling me about her ex-husband's family and Blevins town but she never told me where it was.

Almost 1/3 of the people of Pound are named Blevins, the other 1/3 are named Mullins and then there are Meades and others and many of them work mines down southwest Va.

In the late 50' and all during the 60's many came to NOVA due to mine shutdowns and black lung 60's . Hard working decent American people they are . Some went to "Wise Teachers College" now known as UVA Wise

But more live in the area they call Pound . Francis Gary Powers was from Pound Va . He was a US Air Force U2 pilot shot down by Russia in the early 1960's . He died in 1977 in a helicopter accident .

His son was trying to establish a Cold War museum at the Lorton prison site where the Nike missiles were at about 15 years ago , the hot armed real nuke ones as a final air defense to protect Washington DC against Soviet bombers it would have been a interesting place and a memorial to those who served during the cold war.
