Phone Repair Store to Replace Longtime Dupont Photo Gallery
It looks as though a recently closed Dupont Circle photo gallery will be replaced by a shop that repairs, buys and sells phones.
The Claude Taylor Photography gallery at 1627 Connecticut Ave. NW closed two weeks ago. Owner and gallery namesake Claude Taylor opened the store in 1998, according to an Exposed DC post.
The dozens of framed photographs that once lined the shop’s windows are gone. Now, a drab white banner hangs in the blue storefront’s window:
PHONE REPAIR STORE
BUY AND SELL
Down the street, photo supply shop Embassy Camera is also slated to leave the neighborhood on Sept. 17. But that store will reopen at 1225 I St. NW “on or about” Oct. 15, its owners said.
It’s unclear whether that store’s former home, too, will become a phone repair shop.
