twin houses, part 1

One of the many unique characteristics of Historic Anacostia is the profusion of twin houses. Because the neighborhood was built by lots of different developers and landowners over a long period of time, there are many instances of townhouses (not duplexes) connected to only one other home, rather than the more common long strings of nearly-identical houses you might find in other parts of the city- although we have a few of those as well.

I really like both of these sets: the first from the 1300 block of V St SE, and the second from the 1400 block.
