Nestled in a valley beside the Tennessee River and surrounded by the southern Appalachian mountains, Chattanooga is truly Tennessee’s most scenic city. With the experience of the Great Depression and World War II still strong in memory, and the legacy of the long-ago Civil War still percolating, Chattanoogans would grapple with the new realities of postwar America while preserving much of what had given the city its unique aura. In this companion volume to Historic Photos of Chattanooga, William F. Hull leads a tour past many Chattanooga landmarks from recent times, reminiscing with Chattanoogans who can remember and informing those new to the city who may not. Nearly 200 images reproduced in vivid black-and-white, with captions and introductions, show the Tivoli Theatre, Rock City, Dupont, Chickamauga Lake, Lovell Field, the Hunter Museum, Coca-Cola Bottling, Krystal, Erlanger Hospital, the Chattanooga Lookouts, radio legend Luther Masingillstill broadcasting today after 70 yearsand, of course, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, among countless other subjects from yesteryear that remain key to the city’s past and present.
