1889 view of the Devil's Triangle - Sheppard's Addition.
Image of what became the Devil's Triangle neighborhood from 1889. At this time the area was referred to as "Sheppard's Addition." Only lots, no buildings yet. This image is from “Atlas of the City of Richmond, Virginia and Vicinity,” published in Philadelphia: by G. William Baist, 1889. Notice the Soldier's Home grounds on the left. Also, Leonard Street is now Patterson Ave. and the are of Franklin St. on this map is now Monument Ave.
