Overview

Richmond is an American city quintessentially founded on change. From its colonial birth to the present, it has constantly rebuilt and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing times, Richmond has grown and prospered by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its residents. Historic Photos of Richmond in the 50s, 60s, and 70s captures this journey through the mid-to-late twentieth century, using still photographs from eminent archives. The images depict the city’s story beginning with the prosperous Fifties that followed World War II, continuing through the tumultuous Sixties and the Civil Rights Movement, and concluding with the Seventies, when losses among Richmond’s old buildings strengthened the preservation impulse. Included are scenes selected from among thousands of historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate the historic changes that have transpired in one of America’s most historic cities.
