Downtown C’ville from West Main, 1972

ERMar1972Looking EastFromWestMainLeading up to our Roseberry show at C’ville Coffee and we want to share a few more of the rare and remarkable photos from Ed’s archives. This image, taken in 1972 from a rooftop on West Main Street gives a fascinating perspective of downtown Charlottesville. The American station seen in the middle of the view is about where the Lewis and Clark Condominiums stand today. Many other things to see here, some familiar, some gone (the latest being the Olds dealership building in the foreground). You can even see a relatively undeveloped Pantops Mountain in the distance.
