This May 1964 image shows the Rolling Pin Bakery on Lakeside Avenue. The bakery opened in the 1930s on West Broad Street. After the death of owner William T. Price in the late 1950s, the store relocated to Lakeside, where it remained for many more years before closing.

In March 1938, the Richmond-Ashland Electric Line ceased operating trolleys after 31 years. The route had its start in 1812 as a stagecoach toll road. Trolleys were seen as the way of the future in 1907, but because of financial difficulties, the route finally changed over to bus service.

Richmond, Va., 2004. A sinkhole gapes in Richmond, Va., on Aug. 31, 2004. The collapse was caused by heavy rain from the remnants of Tropical Storm Gaston. The unexpected downpour led to widespread flooding that left at least five dead and devastated a historic neighborhood. Mark Gormus / Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP

You can see I-64 connecting to I-95 in the background, to give you an idea of the angle. Site's poster thinks all of the buildings you can see in this picture that are within a few blocks of the coliseum are now gone.
