Webcams Richmond online
Like many cities in Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia, founded in the 18th century, Richmond is at the junction of the Piedmont Plateau and the Atlantic Lowland. This area is known as the "fall line", because there are many waterfalls on streams and rivers flowing down from the plateau. In those years, the main mode of transport was river, and the "fall line" was the top point of navigation along the rivers (for example, Richmond is at the top point of navigation on the James River). The population is 220,000 people.
