Washington DC and The Beatles

Thinking of you Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr!  While assisting on a photo shoot in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C. yesterday with architectural photographer Todd A. Smith for Toll Brothers we looked across the rooftops to that building with the concrete barrel-vault roof.  Formerly known as the Washington Coliseum it is where the Beatles’ first ever U.S. concert was held, February 11, 1964. The Beatles played in a circular, theatre-in-the-round style, thoughtfully rotating their equipment between sets so the thousands of fans on the various sides of the building could have a turn getting a good look.
