A Different View Today

This is looking east from probably near the crest of Cameron Hill, which itself today has been "chopped off" from its original height and contains the Blue Cross headquarters. Despite being famous for a lot of activity during the Civil War, very little from that time period, or even 1902, remains in Chattanooga today.

Just right off-hand, I know that the two churches on the far right are still here - that's the Episcopal church and the Second Presbyterian. Almost smack in the middle is the "Dome Building", known for it's golden dome, at the corner of Georgia Avenue and 8th Street. The Catholic Church is just to its right. The rest of the business district seen here has mostly been rebuilt in some form or fashion. Progress, they say.

Always fun to see my current home on Shorpy!
