This is Main Street

Holsinger Main St. Edit with trolley

Main Street Charlottesville, early in the 20th Century.  Familiar landmarks like The Jefferson Theater and Charlottesville Hardware are visible in this image.  Electric trolleys ran down the center of Main Street, which, at the time was paved with bricks.  Today, many of these buildings still exist and the commercial structures along this corridor still average the same 3 or 4 stories giving Charlottesville its unrivaled appeal and sense of history.  On Thursday, April 11th, you can join us at C’ville Coffee for a tour through time down Main Street, C’ville seeing photographs from the past 100 years or more.  (7pm. $5 at the door)
