Picture of the Day: Construction of Interstate 95 through the middle of Jackson Ward (1958)

From Harry Kollatz’s excellent The Curve Around the Station:

The highway through Richmond eventually took 180 acres of city-owned and 210 acres of privately owned land, including 726 homes and businesses. Architectural historian Mary Wingfield Scott noted more buildings were lost than those destroyed by the April 3, 1865, Evacuation Fire.
