  • Described
Biographical or historical data
Beginning in 1908, the City of Richmond instituted a policy of issuing formal building permits. Along with an application for a building permit, part of the process for approval of a building was the submission of a set of architectural blueprints and written specifications for the proposed project. These materials were submitted to the Richmond City Office of Building Inspection which was responsible for the review of the drawings and the issuing of building permits.
