A Richmond Air Raid Zone Map Was Published

The Richmond Times-Dispatch published this Air Raid Zone Map, released by the Office of Civilian Defense, during World War II. The city was divided into zones, which were then subdivided into areas covered by different wardens. The wardens were listed to inform citizens who they should contact for assistance in case of an attack.
