Main Street Shops

Over 70 years ago this traveling puppet show entertained Charlottesville children outside Victory Shoe Store on Main Street.


Today, all the buildings remain, housing new shops and fronting on the pedestrian mall.

About

Charlottesville Then and Now is a photoblog showing vintage images from around Charlottesville and pairing them up with current day views of the same location.

The blog is the work of Steve Trumbull of Trumbull Photography and the Charlottesville Historical Image Library.


This website features photographs of places in and around Charlottesville, Virginia. I have collected a number of old images, taken over the past century or more, and paired them with photos of the current day location.


Use the archive below or the "Older Posts" link at the bottom of this page to explore the many places and stories I have researched for this project. Check back often for new additions. Feel free to contact me with any comments or to share old photos at: steve@trumbulldesign.com

You can now follow this project and other photography happenings on Facebook and Trumbull Photography.

Thanks for your interest!
