The history of Richmond, Virginia in photos
LOVE this...thanks for posting.
Any idea what part of the James this is? I can't tell if that's Tredegar in the background. Thanks.
I'm not totally sure, but I was thinking it was looking South across the river.
this is super cool. thanks for posting! i always love the photos you find.
Look at the size of those pine timbers!
The tall buildings near the other end of this bridge are the Dunlop Mills, which burned in 1949. This is indeed taken from the north side of the river, looking south. The pontoon bridge was close to where the Mayo (Fourteenth Street) bridge is today. The Southern States building and part of the flood wall currently occupy the site of the mills.
