By Kitty Snow
In From A Richmond Streetcar, Kitty Snow has compiled a wonderful resource by sharing the photographs of her great-grandfather, Richmond streetcar motorman and photographer Harris H. Stilson (1868-1934). Stilson's photographs are unique and they offer Richmonders of today a rare view of how the city looked at the beginning of the 20th century. The working class life of Richmond is especially well documented in Stilson's images which is something that has long been missing in previous published works on the city's history. By illustrating the many connections between Richmonders of the 1910s and 1920s, the book shows us, in Snow's words, that Richmond really was a small town of not six degrees of separation but perhaps two.
