    One thought on “Richmond, Virginia”

    1. A very interesting read looking at old places in Richmond, Virginia and then seeing those same buildings as they look "today" or discovering what has replaced these historical buildings / areas.Thank-you to the Virginia Beach Public Library for this ILL.

    2. Nice vanity publication with many recognizable Richmond buildings and destinations. A bit glib, but some of the photographs were interesting.
