Nashville – 1922

Nashville – Shopping in 1922

I spent a lot of time in Nashville during the early years of the 21st century, and I have many happy memories associated with the place.

In March of 1922, George was passing through the city, en route to Washington.

He mailed a postcard from the train station to Mrs. Shaffner in Charlotte, N.C.

The hand-tinted postcard photograph shows the retail establishments along a length of Fifth Avenue looking north from Church Street.

One can read the names of some of the businesses, such as the Porter Clothing Company”.

I believe that the dome of the Capital Building is visible in the background. (I sometimes stayed in hotels in this area.)

There was some damage to the edge of the image which I repaired digitally.

One hopes that George enjoyed his visit to this exciting city.
