Old neighborhood photos

    Hi all – a friend has just bought a house in Arlington and I’d love to get a photo of the house as it was originally. Any ideas where I can go to find something like that?

    Thanks.

    Look through the plot registry, find the names of the first owner and see if they are still alive and ask for a photo.

    Post the address-maybe someone on this board will know something or know someone who knows something.

    It’s probably not exactly what you’re looking for but check out historicaerials.com. I ended up purchasing a couple photos dating back to the ’50s of a friends new neighborhood and gave it as a housewarming gift. It’s pretty interesting to see the neighborhoods in N. Arlington expand and the trees that were planted as saplings grow and get bigger.

    Thanks for posting the Historic Aerials site. That is really cool.
