One hint - the image been published at least twice in two different publications in two different centuries but not the current century.

It is the corner of Harrison and Park (this image first published in in 1891 in the picture book on Richmond called "Picturesque Richmond" - then published again in 1996 in "Richmond's Fan District" by Drew Carneal.

That nice looking Richardsonian house on the left was later replaced with the Scottish Rite Temple - we'll have an image of it online in the few weeks.
