1955 Ad for Home on Bangor Street in Hillcrest

Hopefully we are earning a GoDCer for life in Ayanna by posting all of these Hillcrest-related advertisements.

If you know the person that lives here, send this to them. I’m sure they’d love to see their home back in 1955. And for all you GoDCers out there, compare the advertisement above to the Google Street View of the home today. Looks very similar, with a bit more foliage.
