from the Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911

RICHMOND is the capital of Virginia, U.S.A., the county-seat of Henrico county, and a port of entry, on the James river (at the head of navigation), about 100 m. S. by W. of Washington, B.C., and about 125 m. by water from the Atlantic Ocean. Pop. (1850) 27,570; (1860) 37,910; (1870) 51,038; (1880) 63,600; (1890) 81,388; (1900) 85,050, of whom 32,230 were Negroes and 2865 were foreign-born; (1910 census) 127,628 by 2016 the Richmond population was 223,170.

The city has a beautiful situation on the hilly ground (maximum elevation, about 250 ft. above sea-level) along the north and east banks of the James, at a bend where the river changes its south-easterly course for one almost due south. It occupies seven hills, from which fact it has been called the Modern Rome.”

Belle Island 2011 by Jim Wissert

The western stretch of the river, opposite the city, breaks into rapids which have a fall of about 116 ft. in 9 m. and provide abundant water power. Belle Isle (the site of a Confederate prison camp during the Civil War), about 1 m. long by about 1 m. wide, is in this part of the river; a little farther down stream are a group of small islets, and opposite the south-eastern boundary of the city is Mayo’s Island.

Within the city’s lines, the river is crossed by two bridges (to Manchester) for vehicles and pedestrians, and three railway bridges. The river has been improved by Federal engineers since 1870; in June 1909  which cost $1,799,033  or $49,826,214. 57 in 2017  for improvements including a channel 100 ft. wide and 18 ft. deep, making the area from Hampton Roads to the Richmond wharf nearly continuous with the maximum draft at low water was 16-1 ft.

About three-fourths of the city’s total street mileage or 120 m is paved with either Belgian block (granite cobblestone) or macadam. About 637-8 acres are devoted to city parks among which are William Byrd Park (300 acres), Joseph Bryan Park (262-6 acres), Chimborazo Park (29 acres),, Gambles Hill Park (8-10 acres), Monroe Square (71 acres), Jefferson Park (6-3 acres) am Marshall Square (7 acres).

The State Capitol Square (10 acres) is not owned by the city at this time.
