This pictorial history is a look into the early years of Nashville

Within these pages you will see horse-drawn carts moving over dirt roads, and cars bustling along smooth downtown streets. Trains, planes, boats, and streetcars being used for commerce and for leisure. You will see people young and old selling newspapers or working in mills; a glance into the evolution of industries that continue to this day. 

Looking within and without of stores, banks, gas stations, and hotels, we are given a glimpse into the necessities of the day. Students can be seen learning in classrooms, training schools, universities, and occasionally just at play. Many pages are filled with people serving their community. They fought fires, fought illegal activity, and of course a fair few fought in wars.

Family and friends are pictured coming together, whether it be at church, at the Centennial Exposition, or even gathering the whole family on the porch for a photo.

As a pictorial history, this book provides a snapshot (well, many snapshots) of life, a glimpse into the day to day experiences of those who lived while cities and towns were starting to form and grow.
