Rare postcard view of Church Hill from 1908

[Click for larger view]

East from Medical College on Marshall Street, Richmond, Va., postmarked 1908.

This view of Church Hill was probably taken from the Medical College of Virginia’s Egyptian Building. The same view today is punctuated by Interstate 95. This image is one of nearly 250 found in the new book Greetings from Richmond - which focuses on Richmond's architectural history. Order the book Here. It makes for a great Holiday gift!
