To See Fairlawn Means a Lot
This is an advertisement for new development and real estate across the Eastern Branch, near Anacostia. Click on the ad for a closer look at what is a harsh window into a very different (and blatantly racist) time in Washington.

Fairlawn is also where Anacostia High School is located.
