Reader Susan Benshoff sent in these great shots of Shockoe Bottom from 1980. All of these are different angles of the intersection of N. 18th and East Franklin. The first image shows the bottom of the sign for the building on the Northwest corner. It's been abandoned as long as I've lived in Richmond, and I've always wondered why, and what it used to be. The seafood store on the opposite corner is now a parking lot.
