Cobbled Streets of Richmond

Richmond, Virginia was one of the greatest coffee port cities north of the Indies. Due to coffee being light weight during the trek overseas, many ships would also carry ballast stones in order to make up for the shortage in weight. These same stones were re-purposed and used as the cobbles that make up some of Richmond’s streets today.

There is a certain charm to these cobbled streets …..

The Ginza is Tokyo’s most famous upmarket shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, night clubs and cafes.

A visit is most pleasant on weekend afternoons when the central Chuo Dori street is closed to automobile traffic and becomes a large pedestrian zone. Image circa 1985.
