Richmond from above (1952)

Cam tipped me to this 1952 map of Richmond at Historic Aerials. Poking around the East End at some areas that have been redeveloped on a larger scale in the last 60 years uncovers a glimpse into an older look at Jefferson Townhomes (above), Fairfield Court, and Fulton. The yellow overlay shows the current street grid.

A higher resolution, non-watermarked version of the map is available for $20 if anyone wants to chip in. Lemme know.

Great find. Just wish zooming into a property was a bit more clearer than grain and fuzzy. No details outside of seeing it in an entire neighborhood-region mode.
