  1. I love this rare example of art deco in Georgetown. The Washington Post said of 3210 Reservoir Road in an October 7, 1937 piece:

    “It’s hard to understand why the Smiths could leave their old house for a nice new one. Their former home is in that historic Georgetown block of high-ceiling colonial houses…The Smith’s new residence is near the junction of Wisconsin avenue and R street. The neighborhood verges on slummy, but, typical of Georgetown, it takes one pioneer to make a field day for the remodelers who follow closely the trail thus blazed and redecorate all around to the tune of soaring rents.”

    Mr. & Mrs. L. M. C. Smith…George pioneers!
