Doing this blog has led me to discover many beautiful old buildings in Richmond that have been torn down, so here's another case where the buildings have not only survived, but actually been improved.

Gotta love those cars though.

Fast forward almost 27 years, and here are the same houses today, fixed up and thriving:
