    Speaker: Kitty Snow

    Topic:  Up & Down Church Hill: Church Hill, Fulton, & Shockoe.  Kitty Snow is the great granddaughter of Harris Stilson.  Harris Stilson’s job was driving a Richmond streetcar but his passion was photography. His images of Richmond in the early 1900s offer a glimpse into our city’s past seldom seen before. 

    In the early 1900s, Harry Stilson's Church Hill streetcar route offered him vistas of Chimborazo & the James River as well as faces of  people who walked the cobble stoned streets and delivered milk to families including the Nolde family and Richmond's icon, Sailor Bob. The photograph often displayed of the Church Hill Tunnel pre-collapse was taken by Harry Stilson and is only one of the hundreds Harry took along his streetcar route. His great-granddaughter, Kitty Snow, will share images of Church Hill, Fulton, & Shockoe from the Stilson collection & stories from those neighborhoods. 

    Kitty Snow has written four books, From a Richmond Streetcar, On the West Clay Line (Jackson Ward, Carver, & Newtowne), Up & Down Church Hill (Images by Harris Stilson & Oral Histories from Church Hill, Shockoe, & Fulton) and From Richmond to France (Images & Stories of Richmond & Her World War I Soldiers). Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
