What businesses were in Knoxville in 1903?

American Journal of Commerce

Newly digitized and on the McClung Digital Collection, the American Journal of Commerce, Knoxville, 1903, describes many of the businesses that were in Knoxville at that time. From the first page with its photograph of the "New Market House and City Hall," there are pictures of buildings, houses, city streets, and also the interiors of some businesses. In addition, there are descriptions of many of the businesses in Knoxville and short biographies and photos of the business people who founded them. Look closely and you may recognize some of the buildings and/or businesses.
