Overview

Richmond is an American city quintessentially founded upon change. From its birth to the present, Richmond has consistently rebuilt and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, Richmond has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book, Historic Photos of Richmond, Emily and John Salmon provide a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Richmond. Remembering Richmond captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the forging of Richmond during the Revolutionary War to becoming capital of the Confederacy to its rise as a modern city, Remembering Richmond follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. It captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than 100 historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
