It is a side topic, but I am looking for photos of Shockoe Valley north of Broad before demolition for 95 commenced.

If you look in Google Books for the “Report on Housing and Living Conditions in the Neglected Sections of Richmond, Virginia”, there are additional photos that have not been extracted.

If anyone has yet to read Scott C. Davis’ excellent book about Fulton:
“The World of Patience Gromes, Making and Unmaking a Black Community”
he’s shared the first 35 pages, here:
