The history of Richmond, Virginia in photos
the big flood was 72.. so the above was 2 years after that...
It looked a lot worse before we started working on it for the APVA in 1999...
this reminds me of the one you did for east franklin
I vaguely remember how bad they looked in the 90s...I was psyched when I saw them being renovated.Forgot about the '72 flood, that may explain why these were abandoned in '74. Although I wouldn't be surprised if they sat empty like this for many years before the top pic was taken.
I live there! It's a great place downtown, I'm hoping there's more to come on some of the nearby blocks.
my son and his friends live there. great place and the interior retains many of its historical details; fireplaces, plaster, high ceilings. glad someone took the time and money to restore it.
