Flashback Friday: 13 Photos of Stars Passing Through DC
Nancy Reagan had never seen the television series The A-Team, but when she heard that its star, Mr. T, was an antidrug crusader, she invited him to the White House. It was right before Christmas 1984.

There’s a photo essay in the December 1998 issue of Washingtonian that tells the story of the city’s last hundred years.
