Show off your Richmond smarts

We’re stoked to launch a new weekly feature here on RVANews, produced in partnership with the Valentine Richmond History Center, that will test your knowledge of our city’s history and give you the chance to win some pretty great prizes.

Every Friday, the RVANews Picture of the Day will feature an image from the Valentine’s digital archive, which, by the way, is a total treasure trove of Richmond history. They’ve got over one million photographs documenting all things Richmond from the 1850s to the present. It’s amazing.

Each image will have an accompanying question related to Richmond history. Of the folks who answer correctly, one winner will be picked who will then get to choose between an 8×10 print of the featured image or a two-pack of tickets to any 2010 walking tour (valued at $20).

And now, on with the contest!

On January 20, 1977, the Heritage Savings & Loan bank in The Fan was robbed at gunpoint. The bank no longer exists, but the building remains. What’s the cross street?

Know the answer? Take the quiz for a chance to win!.

NOTE: You need to fill out the survey to be entered to win. Don’t give the answer away in the comments!
