    A quick overview of the monuments and landmarks not located on Monument Avenue. I am familiar with most of these, but there are a few that I haven't seen yet and will now be seeking out. The monuments are grouped by general type (military, law enforcement, etc.) or area of the city (downtown, parks, VCU, etc.), with a chronological list of when they were erected in the back of the book.

    Interesting account of the less visible or popularly renowned statues within the city. Some oddballs. Location info should have been incorporated into the abstracts, and full color would have been much more visually appealing.

    LOVE! I really enjoyed learning about the monuments of Richmond that can be found beyond the avenue. I think I will buy a copy of this one and go on a self-guided tour. I found out about a lot of things I have passed by before.
