Richmond: A Historic Walking Tour (Images of America).

In addition to being the state capital, Richmond, Virginia, was also the capital of the South during the Civil War. After Reconstruction, businesses developed, and the warehouse district--Shockoe Bottom--was rebuilt, boosting Richmond's economic growth. Today Richmond is a vibrant city that embraces its historical past while looking toward future developments. Then & Now: Richmond uses late-19th-century photographs of Richmond neighborhoods, churches, businesses, and schools, contrasting these historic photographs with contemporary views of the same Richmond sites such as St. John's Church, the Capitol, Broad Street, Main Street, and the Old Stone House. Then & Now: Richmond takes a step back in time and compares the glory of the past with the progress of the future.

The book is a great orientation to Richmond

Good Book
Runehammer
Not as much information as I had hoped.
Skunk Black
Great.

Very hard to follow along on the kindel version. The narrative is good and the photos are good but you can't necessarily match them.
Early Waffle
This book is very informative and the pictures are great.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the history of this great city. As a rail buff and historian, I quickly fell in love with the city of Richmond. The way it has preserved its past while still looking toward the future is very well expressed in the photographs in this book. Terrific views abound of what once was, and what has been unfortunately lost to time. This is about the nicest collection I have seen of "old Richmond" since the Dementi Brother's book, "Celebrate Richmond". If there is a downside to this book, and the one thing that keeps it from a full five star rating, is that it centers more on the immediate downtown area, and neglects some of the city's more famous surrounding neighborhoods. Aside from the Westham and UR areas, the West End is all but omitted in this book. Monument Avenue gets a passing mention, but that's it. There is no mention of Broad Street Station, Triple Track Crossing, or the Bottoms. The closest to Shockoe Bottoms this book comes is Tredegar Iron, and the old ALCO factory. All that aside, it is still a great addition to anyone's library that is as fascinated with this city's great history as I am.
This is one of the must haves when planing a trip to Richmond. It is detailed without overloading the reader. It is just right as a travel companion, and can easily be carried along as you tour the city.
