Description

Lantern slide featuring a close-up photo of the brickwork on the James City County Courthouse. It is the seventh slide in a set produced by the Pacific Stereopticon Co. of Los Angeles, California, now defunct, to illustrate the story of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin's dream to restore a portion of Williamsburg, Virginia to its 18th-century appearance as a shrine to early American ideals.

This slide offers a close-up view of the arched brick colonnade on the new courthouse built to relocate municipal activities outside of the restored area of Williamsburg in the 1930s. The brick headers and stretchers of the walls are arranged in a Flemish bond pattern.
