Snapshots Of Chattanooga's Past

The Chattanooga News-Free Press archive, found at ChattanoogaHistory.Com

Maybe you saw the photo online in The Chattanooga Times Free Press of teens from the 1950’s sipping Coca-Cola, or maybe the photo from 1960 of Loveman’s department store in downtown Chattanooga.

These photos - and others - are part of a new weekly series at The Times Free Press, called:  “Remember When, Chattanooga?”

Mark Kennedy writes the stories in the series - and the photos are on loan from ChattanoogaHistory.Com, a website created by Sam Hall.
