A fairly recent history

The Virginia Film Office has a location library of shots from around the neighborhood from what appears to be the early 1990s. The set labeled Church Hill Residential (Rough) caught a bunch of building that have since been fixed up or demolished.

These two photos from the same intersection on M Street show a different Union Hill.

The panorama of North 23rd Street shows the houses that used to be at 1001-1005, and shows the store that was at 1097 North 23rd Street. Fairmount still has a fair amount of decay.

The panorama of the 1200 block of North 22nd Street took me a little while to recognize, I had to walk over and get evidence to finally convince myself that this was actually the same block.

This shot shows the blank field where the new BHC houses on 26th Street have been built, and the old apartments across the street.
