18th and Columbia Road: Many Jewish families lived on Lanier Place and the surrounding streets near 18th and Columbia Road, NW, in the 1920s. Chazan Moshe Yoelson moved to the neighborhood from 4 ½ Street, SW, when his son—entertainer Al Jolson—bought him a house at 1787 Lanier Place. Shown here are Jeanette Naiman (Danziger) and her niece Irma Naiman (Greenspoon), who lived next door to each other at 1747 and 1749 Lanier Place.
