"Main Street from Eleventh. Richmond, Virginia," ca. 1905, Detroit Publishing Company glass negative - I came across this image from Shorpy "Always Something Interesting" web site. Lots of neat images at that site. The Detroit Publishing Co. was one of the nation's largest producers of postcards. If you look closely, you will see that they are laying the tracks for the "new" streetcar system.
The view today.
