Picked up Walter Griggs’ The Collapse of Richmond’s Church Hill Tunnel from Chop Suey (When I got up to the register with my book, the cashier asked me if I’d like one of the misprinted covers…) this weekend, but haven’t had a chance to really get into it yet. Flipping through it appears to be well-written, and there are photos that I’ve not seen before.
Shop local! This book, along with HRF’s new The Church Hill Old & Historic Districts and Ben Campbell’s Richmond’s Unhealed History would make great gifts this season. Check out Chop Suey in Carytown, Fountain Books in Shockoe, Black Swan on Main Street, and the Valentine gift shop if you’re looking for copies of these or other books on Church Hill or Richmond history.
