This Date in History

July 31, 1905: John Cammack, of 3553 Brightwood avenue, reported $1,650 missing, a loss that puzzled the police. Mr. Cammack insisted that the money was stolen from his pockets, but the police were of the opinion the money was lost. Mr. Cammack had gone to the Riggs Bank about noon and drawn out $2,270 prior to the loss (Brightwood avenue would later be renamed Georgia avenue, the the Cammack estate eventually became the northern third of Park View)
