Progressive Knoxville 1903

New to the McClung Digital Collection is the pamphlet, Progressive Knoxville, 1903. This fascinating pamphlet, subtitled "The Metropolis of East Tennessee:  A pictorial review of the city showing photographic reproductions of the streets, parks, residences, public buildings, schools, churches and industries," includes a short overview of Knoxville and almost 60 pages of pictures. As you look through the pages, you'll see many homes and businesses that still exist and many that have been demolished. Look closely and you'll recognize some of the buildings, but not necessarily the purpose for which they were used in 1903.
