Summer depicts history as well as beauty as you see the transformation of the L&N Railyards into the World's Fair park and a Civil War hospital into the TVA offices. From lakes and shores to Knoxville College, go on a historical tour of summer in Knoxville with this section of the book.

In late 1931, workers for Booth & Flinn Co. of Pittsburgh had completed more than half of the Henley Street Bridge across the Tennessee River.

The bridge's graceful arches now frame the modern City-County Building on the river's north bank.

Many of Knoxville's other Autumn features are seen in Gary's book. Two that you will recognize:

The Market House was a hub of commerce for decades in downtown Knoxville. The building, along with the farmer's trucks of the 1920s, have been replaced by a pedestrian mall dominated by an open pavilion known as Market Square.

Built in 1897 and still standing, the bandstand at Chilhowee Park was a popular gathering spot during the National Conservation Exposition in 1913. Chilhowee Park is the home of the annual Tennessee Valley A & I Fair.

Mules and wagons were used in the construction of the University of Tennessee's football stadium in 1921. Neyland Stadium, the second largest college football stadium in the nation, now seats more than 97,000.

Winter has a different look than any other season in Gary Heatherly's book

Take a look at when The Tennessee River froze under the Gay Street Bridge in 1915, before it was channeled and made part of the Tennessee Valley Authority system. Coal smoke and soot hung over the city in this 1913 view of downtown and the Gay Street Bridge.

The colors of the sky at sunset seem different during the Winter. Snow-covered trees form a bright contrasting line with clear blue sky. Today the clear winter sky makes it possible to see the snow-capped Smokies some 50 miles away.
