Wright’s Texaco sat on the NW corner of Barrack’s Road and Emmet Street in what is now the North Wing of Barracks Road shopping Center.
This photograph was recently added to our collection in a thoughtful donation by Randy Rinehart. Mr. Rinehart provided us with dozens of 1950s-era images from his father’s business, Ivy Construction. We will be featuring many of them here on C’ville Images as well as in upcoming photo presentations. The photographs document many of the shops, businesses, buildings, and houses from mid-Twentieth Century Charlottesville.
