Downtown Chattanooga showing Queen and Crescent Rail yards

Published in Chattanooga Yesterday and Today, vol. 3, p. 90. Embossed photographer's stamp reads: "Stokes- Forstner, Chattanooga, Tenn." Hiener indicates date 1918; research suggests date actually earlier ca. 1912.

Ghost of the past

100 year-old signage of MILLS AND LUPTON SUPPLY is barely visible on a building, now part of 'Warehouse Row'.

History Under our Feet

An old Alabama and Chattanooga Railroad building remains behind the Southern Railway headquarters at 1301 Market St. The Urban Stack hamburger place now occupies this site. Cobblestones dating to the city's earliest days are still in place as a picturesque pavement outside this quaint railroad building.
