1881 Ad for LeDroit Park

The Library of Congress keeps an online collection of old newspapers to chronicle American history.  Look at this 1881 ad for “cottages” in LeDroit Park:

Le Droit Park.—Cottages of six and eight rooms; all the modern conveniences; north and south front; $25 to $30. A. L. Barber & Co., Le Droit building.

Amzi Barber’s office was downtown in the LeDroit Building, which still stands today at 800 F Street NW:
