RVA Time Machine: WRVA

By Boomer Staff | August 4th, 2016

This week we take the time machine back to Broad Street and how WRVA's home base used to look like in 1960.


Broad Street in downtown doesn’t look so different although it is no longer the home of radio station WRVA.

This photo was taken on East Broad Street from Fifth Street on July 31 1960 by Adolph B. Rice Studio. Courtesy of the Library of Virginia.
