Check out the Google Street View of the same property today. It’s not a great angle because the straight-on shot has trees blocking it.

    Ever since I bought my own Wardman here in DC, I’ve been fascinated in the changes that people have made to the homes in DC over the years and wish I knew the thinking behind those changes. For instance, why on earth would anyone purposely remove that lovely front porch? When did they take those interesting plants out and why? I would find the story behind even something as mundane as that fascinating.
