Takoma Water Co

Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  Takoma Water Co, 620 F Street NW (1897-1898)

The 1899 directory listed "Sherwood, Thomas J." as a bottler at that same address (620 F st NW). I don't know if he bought the business, or if he was already the owner and just changed the name. The 1880 Census says Thomas Sherwood was born 1845 in DC, and that he "works in beer house". The 1900 Census lists his occupation as "bartender".
