Street scene of Richmond St. near the corner of Richmond St. and Pine St. in downtown Providence. Many of these commercial buildings were erected as far back as 1889 and have shuffled owners and intentions. Where some have been remodeled, the commercial buildings retain a similar vein of their past. They are all flat-roofed, rectangular multi-tier buildings with open glass windowed storefronts on the street and office space on their higher levels.
