Hey There: 1905

Hey There: 1905

Knoxville, Tennessee, circa 1905. "Cumberland Club and Walnut Street." Quick, someone call the Photobomb Squad. 8x10 glass negative. View full size.

 

The view today

The Cumberland Club was a men’s club on the corner of Walnut and Clinch. The bell tower in the background is the Second Presbyterian Church, on the southwest corner of Walnut and Church. A history of the church says that it was built starting in 1906 and was dedicated in 1908.

Then and now.

This guy may have invented it. Perfect expression for a photobomb.
