Over the next few months C’ville Images will be featuring a series of posts on West Main Street in Charlottesville. The image above shows the section of town at the top of Vinegar Hill known as “Midway.” The Lewis and Clark monument seen in the picture has stood there for nearly a century while dramatic changes have occurred around it.
For all previous posts on West Main Street search “West Main” at the top of this page. Find even more in our “Charlottesville Then and Now” archives.
