Lansburgh's - Washington, DC

Lansburgh's was a chain of department stores in the Washington, D.C. area.  The chain went out of business in 1973.  Very rarely do we have perfect documentation of a display, but that is the case here.  I have no idea who either the author or the recipient of the letter was, but it apparently came into the possesion of Maury Romer, who kept it with this photo.  In any case, it dates the layout to December 1961.  A close look at the rolling stock indicates 60's era production and the use of what appears to be Pikemaster track.
