Richmond Then and Now

Richmond was a very different place a decade after the Civil War than it is today.  When we started working on the Visualizing the Past project for the Library of Virginia, we found a wonderful atlas of Richmond in 1876. This hand painted atlas, published by F.W Beers, features detailed buildings and their owners, parks and public landmarks. These maps served as our basemap for the project because of the great detail they provided. While working on the project I became really interested in what has changed around Richmond since this time.
