Alexandria, VA Did you know that Del Ray was made up of a scattering of wood and brick buildings in the 20s. Check out this old map of Del Ray north of Alexandria from back in 1921. This map of Del Ray in 1921 shows how how undeveloped the area was. The yellow structures are wood frame buildings and the pink ones are brick. It’s certainly a lot different today with a mix of both old, new, and remodeled. Can you identify any of these structures that lasted through to now?
Here’s a map of the same area today. [googlemaps: https://maps.google.com/maps? ]
Thank you to Ghosts of DC for this wonderful story about our neighborhood.
