Same Place, Different City
The photographs in this issue were taken in a different city. It was called Knoxville, and it had roughly the same coordinates of latitude and longitude as ours does, but it was not the same place. Without a few frames of reference, it would be easy to believe that the other Knoxville never existed. But with the help of latter-day Knoxville photographer David Luttrell, and photographs borrowed from the Library of Congress we thought we'd have a look at the two Knoxvilles to see what remains of that other one, and what doesn't.
