Two New Image Sites on Richmond.


Postcard image - "THE HOUSE OF BRUCE" at 3500 [Chamberlayne Ave].  On the back of this post card is printed: The House of Bruce, Modern and Distinctive Guest Accommodations, Excellent Meals, Private and Connecting Baths, Steam Heat and Garage.  A guest wrote simply "Picture of the place we stayed in Richmond."  

I came across these two new image web sites today (one of them thanks to Libby the Cataloger):

Vintage Richmond: The History of Richmond, Virginia in photos.
[who uses a healthy dose of images from this site and VCU Libraries]

AND
Chamberlayne Ave.: Brief illustrated history of Chamberlayne Avenue
as a tourist stopover on historic US Route 1.

Thanks for the mention of Vintage Richmond. I've been a reader of Shockoe Examiner for a year or so and you were definitely an inspiration, along with shorpy.com and vintageseattle.org. Have I used images from your blog? I apologize, I didn't mean to. I'll be more careful in the future. :-)

No, use away, just point that out if its obvious.

Our images are there to be used!
