1922 Ad for Woodridge and Brookland Real Estate

West Woodridge

Here is an advertisement in The Evening Star for real estate in West Woodridge, off of Rhode Island Ave. NE. It was printed on May 6th, 1922. For a little context, on May 5th, construction began on Yankee Stadium in the Bronx (aka, the House that Ruth Built).
