    N. Lincoln St. one block north of Pershing Drive. Lived at 434 N. Lincoln, looks like first house on left next to 5th Street N.

    One friend of the Arlington Historical Society also suggested: Pershing Drive. While another thought it might be Fillmore and First Street?

  • DCGalAshtonHeights

    I don’t think it could be N. Lincoln, as it’s located in Ashton Heights, but hard to tell.

    Both houses on right and left still exist. House on the right has been renovated.

    That’s the 700 block of North Fillmore Street. I grew up on the street and recognized it immediately!

  • Dave

    This is Fillmore Street, 700/800 block, looking North. Most of the homes still stand. The photo must be 1920 because our 1920 home appears to just be foundations.
