The history of Richmond, Virginia in photos
Which came first, Philips-Lewis or Imperial Coffee Company? It looks like the wall might have been sand blasted to clean off the paint at some point.
I was wondering that too.
Like the small air conditioner in the 1970 pic?
Small A/C - for such a sized building - pretty funny! I like also the old white Rambler (at least it LOOKS like the same model Rambler we had back in those days) parked to the left of the warehouse in the 1970 pic.What's more remarkable to me tho - is that area just a few months earlier had suffered extensive flooding from the remnants of Camille that had come through - and only two years later would suffer even more damage from Tropical Storm Agnes. All this in the pre-flood wall days.
