Photographer Unknown
Description Framed photo of 16 W. Kirke St, Chevy Chase, MD
"This enlargement, from a 1914 postcard, shows 16 W. Kirke St as it was before the front porches were removed and the clapboard was covered with stucco. The picture was given to the present occupants in 1961 by Mrs. Vida Ord Alexander, whose parents purchased the house in 1905. The house is one of the first built in Chevy Chase, with the first deed relating to the land purchase dating to 1890. The house was probably built in 1895."
Donated by Flora and Ephraim Jacobs
Date unknown, but photo taken prior to 1961
