I promised some history, and there’s really nothing more historic than old photographs of Richmond! Here is a photograph taken along the canal in April of 1865 immediately following the end of the Civil War. The photograph shows a group of freed slaves. Full information about the photograph can be found at the Library of Congress site, here: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/cwp2003005762/PP/
Sometimes, when I find myself with too much time on my hands, I like to take old photographs and add color to get more of a feeling of what the world might have looked like.
