D.C. was very different the last time it hosted the World Series. Heck, the Pentagon didn't exist back then.

What did the Washington region look like in 1933, the last time a local Major League Baseball team was playing in the World Series? For starters, the Pentagon and National Airport didn’t exist. The Arlington Memorial Bridge was all of 1 year old and the Glenn L. Martin Co. — the company responsible for the “Martin” in Lockheed Martin Corp. — had just started fueling the burgeoning aviation industry from its new headquarters in Maryland.
