VCU Libraries has digitally captured photos from the 1970’s of two Richmond districts. We’ve collected some of our favorites.
VCU Libraries has a free, public-accessible digital collection of photographs taken in Richmond throughout the mid 1970’s. The Richmond Architectural Survey Collection “contains data sheets that identify and evaluate over 600 building located throughout Jackson Ward and Oregon Hill neighborhoods.”
The evaluations were completed so that they could be used in both preservation plans and further city planning. Although intended for documental purposes, many of the photos evoke a nostalgic look at Richmond’s past.
