Old Richmond Grocery Stores
I was doing some work-related research once upon a time and stumbled across http://www.groceteria.com/ website. This great website is devoted to supermarket history and architecture mainly from the 1920's to the 1970's and I highly recommend that you visit that site if you haven't done so already.
Anyway, I got to getting sort of nostalgic about going to the store when I was a kid and realizing that Colonial, Food Fair, Safeway, and A&P are all gone - if not entirely, at least from Richmond.
So, strictly as a pastime and out of curiousity, I decided to do sort of what David Gwynn of the Groceteria.com was doing for places like Charlotte and San Francisco, but about Richmond. First I developed a list of addresses of grocery store and supermarket locations, and then I started taking some pictures. Right now the address list contains over 500 entries and I know it's incomplete because I haven't even added much in the way of current or recent locations since I figure those are low-hanging fruit.
