Looks mid 60’s from the car in the middle. City records should have the address for Simon’s Department Store at right.

Assuming this photograph was taken facing due east, here is what that scene looks like currently. The asphalt strip you see running left-to-right is a newly-constructed part of Admiral Gravely Blvd, but it appears to be built on top of the old roadbed of Williamsburg Ave, based on historical maps.

Unfortunately, you can see the condition of these buildings are in poor shape, but nothing like others seen in the photo series.

The original source says this was part of a series of photographs showing Fulton and its degraded conditions – taken in 1967.

They don’t look much different from other places in Richmond.
