Historic Alexandria, Virginia, Street by Street: A Survey of Existing Early Buildings Reviews
This is an old survey, completed in 1976 before Alexandria became the hip DC satellite it is today. Since we're dealing with historic structures, it's not so much of a problem, but keep in mind that both the photography and the text reveal their age.
Good job of the history of many houses in this historic neighborhood. It is considered the "bible" for some in the area for its contents. It is larger than pocket size but handy if in the area and needing this type of history on houses. Could be used by tourist on walking tours as well I imagine.
Needs to have more info included that I have found out from my neighbors. Needs to be updated. Too expensive for what it is.
