A 1955 shot o ___ from the Adolph B. Rice Studio Collection at the Library of Virginia.
This is one of the best of the collection IMHO. This area looks quite different now. For one, we see the long-removed elevated railway serving the eastern opening of the Church Hill Tunnel (all hidden by underbrush today). And then we see that there were so many row houses along Williamsburg Ave. I know of only one of them still standing. Anyways, fascinating photo.
