If the people of Alexandria <lo not.
recognize that the city has overcome
to a large extent the business depres
sion with which "the world has been
faced and is now on the upward trend,
there are outside interests who have
been able to see it..
Take for instance the real estate
and insurance house of J. Leo K<;lb,
oT Washington, which five* months ago
established a branch at 724 King St.,
Alexandria with Mr. Thomas M. Bick
ers, a reai estate and insurance ex
po t of many years of experience.
Mr. Bickers, not only has found
business good for his house in Alex
andria but sees a brighter outlook,
having the utmost confidence in the
future of Alexandria* and that it
takes only an agressive attitude ^n
the part of 'l* cr.izsns to roorer::te in
biiilr'injr up the city still further.
The Kolb agency does a general
insurance business, representing the
strongest eompanies in the world, and
ha..'dies city and sub:i:b. r. properly.
Bc-entb. they have had a number of
inquiries of houses t'-.r rent or for
r and this is taken as a splendid
indication of the turn in the financial
and foimr.O'T'ial tide of '.he city.
