Annotation

In a nation reinventing itself following victory in World War II, Nashvilles self-portrait blended old with new. New businesses and skyscrapers, a shopping mall, the Interstate system, school integration, and other changes would ultimately bring Nashville into line with the direction of the nation at large, but alongside nationwide trends were treasures unique to the city: Fair Park for thrill-seekers, Sulphur Dell for baseball fans, the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman for music, and the Maxwell House for visitors still arriving through Union Station and now from the air at Berry Field.In this companion volume toHistoric Photos of Nashville,Ashley Driggs Haugen leads a tour past many Nashville landmarks from the recent past, reminiscing with Nashvillians who can remember and informing those new to the city who may not. Nearly 200 images reproduced in vivid black-and-white show the Opry at the Ryman, construction of the L&C Tower, 100 Oaks Mall, the Municipal Auditorium, Harveys Department Store downtown, and countless other subjects from yesteryear that remain key to the citys past and present.
