I love the Vintage Richmond blog. So many great photos and information about Richmond, including the James River.

Vintage Richmond: James River and the old Lee Bridge - 1977Check this one on the view from Belle Isle:

From the June 1977 issue of VCU’s Commonwealth Times comes this great shot of the old Robert E. Lee Bridge. This version of the bridge opened in 1934 and was torn down in the late 80s. The current Lee Bridge opened in 1989.
