Chevy Chase 1913 Real Estate Advertisement

We love digging up old ads from the papers like this one showing some great old real estate in Chevy Chase. You could get a great home in upper northwest back then for $6,500. Using the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that’s the equivalent of about $156,000 today. Not bad, considering these are easily million dollar homes today.

Does anyone recognize the homes in the advertisement above?
