The front-page survey is returning

The Penn Quarter Living blog has taken some pictures and noticed that the Newseum looks to be ready to start putting up a selection of the day’s front pages again. The Express story includes a picture of the old Clarendon Rosslyn location display but gpliving’s post at PQL has shots of the new and different appearance. Looks like the over & under is gone and it’ll be a longer series of one-ups, hopefully reducing crowd density when there’s a lot of tourists in the area.

If you just can’t wait for the physical display you can still see a selection of papers on the Newseum’s website, a feature that has continued through construction. Their about page, um, about the feature, includes an artist’s rendering of that the completed display will supposedly look like, though it certainly looks indoor and the ones in PQL’s post seem to be staying outdoors, so perhaps the layout changed.

Update: As Tom points out, the old Newseum was in Rosslyn, not Clarendon. He did not point out that I am dain bramaged and simply cannot learn to keep the two locations distinct.

    The old location was in Rosslyn across from the teardrop building, Don.

    I chronically use those two locations interchangeably, a habit I suppose I should drop…
