Main Street Station - 1905

This one's for an old friend who's visiting today...I know it's one of his favorite Richmond landmarks. Here's another great shot of Main Street Station in downtown Richmond from around the time it was built in the first few years of the 20th Century. Probably around 1905. I love the angle of this picture, looking down the tracks.

  1. I'm that friend, and you know how I feel about that place. Thanks for thinking of me, and for a nice lunch with all of you.

  2. Such a fantastic building--I've always admired the tower and roofline as I passed it along I-95. Really cool to see this old view before the interstate existed though.
