May 30th, 1886 Three-Story Brick Houses for Sale

May 30th, 1886 real estate advertisement (Washington Post)

The text is a little small and difficult to read, but this is really interesting. This is an advertisement I dug up from May 30th, 1886 in The Washington Post. You could have a pretty nice house for $15,000 or rent one for $40 per month. Not bad.
