This part is great, advertising your potential new neighbors in Columbia Heights:

Elegant residences of Congressmen Prince, Gardner, Hermann, Hogg, Miller, Roberts and Hon. Wm. T. Harris, Commissioner West, Assessor Darneille, Justice Harlan, Mr. Droop, Mrs. John A. Logan, Judge Bundy, Mr. Ailes, Vice President Riggs Bank, and homes of many other prominent, well-known citizens surround these houses.

Anybody know which homes these are? I was checking out Google Street View, but couldn’t narrow down which set of row houses this would have been. The closest I could get was this one.
