Image of Main Street, Richmond Times, August 18, 1901.

From the Chronicling America web site - check out this great image of Main Street from the Richmond Times, August 18, 1901. I've never seen this published before. Nor have I figured out what block this is. I assume we're looking west - maybe near 9th Street?

Ray: This drawn image jolted my memory: I believe, if you go to page 87 of "Richmond In Ragtime" you'll see the same corner -- identified by the Valentine as 12th and Main -- looking west. Unfortunately, the image reproduction is somewhat smalll, but take a look. I think it matches, judging the architecture.
