Alley Dwellings in Washington, DC

A Snapshot of an Alley Dwelling from 1880 to 1910.

This website was created for a Documentation course within the Historic Preservation Program at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design. The focus of this project was discovered through the researching process. The question that I aim to answer is "What was life like in Snow's Court from 1880 to 1910?" The question is not just social, but also structural. My aim is to understand the life of the resident in Snow's Court both socially and in relationship with the built environment.
