Description

An unknown photographer captured this oxen drawn cart trundling past a business and two residences along the portion of Duke of Gloucester Street occupied today by the restored Printing Office, Post Office, and Bookbindery. The Virginia Gazette Printing Office (middle) and the west end of the Gill Dwelling (left) are both eighteenth-century structures that were still standing and in use in the late nineteenth-century. At right is a more modern structure that was later torn down as part of the restoration effort.
