Attorney David P. Hawley generously provided access to this set of historic maps. All 70+ pages were photographed, processed and assembled into an accessible online presentation.
Plat books are large, and often in fragile condition. Each page represents one-half of the plat. All were photographed with a Sony a7 III, full-frame digital camera.
Each image was corrected and aligned in PhotoShop to create accurate representations of the full maps.
Many other historic Chattanooga maps are archived at local institutions and non-profit entities with limited access.
'Plat’ maps are detailed real estate atlases that are valuable resources in research. Buildings footprints, lot sizes, as well as street names and addresses are documented as they were.
