Historic Shots of Downtown Knoxville, 1920s-'50s

A great example of the importance of locating, collecting and preserving regional home movies. This piece was compiled using footage culled from home movies shot by local Knoxvillians, spanning the 1920s through the 1950s. Here is a chance to see our city as it looked years ago.
