Anacostia Street Frozen in Time (1919)

Anacostia home being constructed circa 1919

Here is a terrific shot of homes being built in Anacostia. This was taken around 1919 and this row appears to be the 1900 block of 16th St. SE. Check out the Google Street View below (it’s not quite the same angle because of the trees obstructed the view). This makes for a great “Then and Now.”
