2922 P Street
I know it looks beat up, but I can’t help but smile every time I walk or drive by this place!
This is actually part of the block in which my March CHA Newsletter historical article is about concerning the history of Richmond’s trolley system. It sits on the same block as the first electric trolley car sheds stood at the corner of 29th and P Streets – built 1887 and demolished in 1912. The brick building facing 29th that replaced it which included a station terminal, still stands but blighted. This is all behind the Robinson Theater.
This house was occupied until a year or two ago when it was condemned. Folks were always friendly when I walked my dog by.
Good photo – and a pity it’s not occupied anymore.
This is what it looked like in 2010:
I looked up the guy who owns the long, skinny warehouse next to the theater and sent him a letter about my interest in it (converting to a modern home!) and never heard back. Oh well.
