"Night Scene on Franklin Street" from the February 13, 1938 issue of the Richmond Times-Dispatch's Sunday Magazine and Book Review section. The view is from E. Franklin Street looking down Third Street.
The color illustration by John W. De Groot (1915-1995). De Groot worked for the Richmond Times-Dispatch in the late 1930s as an illustrator and writer. He provided many of the illustrations for the TD's Sunday Magazine section at that time period. This issue is courtesy of Richard Bland. I will be posting more on De Groot and his great illustrations of Richmond scenes in future posts.
