Can anyone identify this house? It appears to be a photo taken in the late 1920s or maybe early 1930s.

Looking east at construction on Arlington Memorial Bridge over the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., in the United States. Note the statue on the partially-constructed pedestal just to the right of the abutments (bottom center).

    I believe that is in Crestwood on Colorado Avenue, less than a block west of 16th St NW. Address is approximately 4870? Colorado Avenue NW.

    Take out the question mark in the house number, and it pulls the house right up.
    Amazing how it is still identical to the photo. Well, a few minor changes, but none

    Even looks almost like the same car in the driveway except the old one looks better.

    I think this is on Colorado Ave NW, between 16th and 18th. That is right by Carter Barron. I grew up in that neighborhood.
