“Dear PoPville,

I think it’s cool to see Petworth before the trees got established [1920]. Kinda looks like any other suburb. I’ve been trying to figure out where exactly the picture was taken. Anyone know?”

That is wild! To me, it looks like the view from where the Safeway is now on Georgia Ave looking west? Anyone else have a guess?
