Nashville in Photographs takes a visual tour of the city. Beginning Downtown, a district rich in treasures such as the Tennessee State Capitol Building and the Nashville Public Library, as well as the Ryman Auditorium, known as the “mother church of country music,” it visits all of Nashville’s most celebrated sights. Within its pages are the stories of riverboat men and presidents, of great works of architecture and simple country life.
From the city’s business and cultural heart the book moves out into Nashville’s surrounding areas, taking in famous musical attractions such as Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, where several country hits were written on the backs of napkins, and Gruhn Guitars . As well as covering the city’s musical heritage the book also offers a glimpse into frontier life at Mansker’s Station, as well as extravagant plantation mansions, such as Cheekwood, now the site of renowned botanical gardens, and the Hermitage, once home to Andrew Jackson. As visually stunning as the city it celebrates, Nashville in Photographs is a fitting tribute to a city whose name is synonymous with country music.
