"New View of A Western Section of Richmond Which Has Recently Built Up By Leaps and Bounds" - The Photograph Which Is Produced Here, Was Taken from the Roof of the Chesterfield at Shafer and Franklin Streets.
- From the Richmond Times-Dispatch, March 26, 1906.
Now this is a View! 105 years ago. Not a clear image - but about the only one I have come across showing Richmond College (the big building on the right) and its orientation facing downtown.
