Do you remember Roy Pepper's Porch, the Jolly Ox, Tomlinson's or George's Place?
Those are some of the old-line Chattanooga restaurants featured in the upcoming book Chattanooga in Old Photos sponsored by Chattanoogan.com.
The book, is being printed by College Press at Collegedale in a limited edition of 800 copies, includes some long forgotten eateries like the 4th Avenue Diner, A.L.
Veach's Cafe, the Dixieanna, Harold's Dugout, La Grand Eat Shop, the Maypole Diner, Shorty's Grill and the Tamiami Lunch Room.
But you will fondly remember Fehn's, the Home Plate, Gulas, Kay's Kastle, the Lamplighter, the Old South, the Rebel Drive In and the recently closed Mt. Vernon.
It is the fourth book in the collection called the Chattanooga Photo Books made possible by Chattanoogan.com. The others are The Remarkable Stokes Collection, Railroads in and Around Chattanooga and Paul Hiener's Historic Chattanooga.
The new book includes almost 300 pages. It features hundreds of scenes from downtown, local landmarks, rivers and streams, parades, medical, banks, churches, entertainment, parks and cemeteries and auto and livery.
Chattanooga in Old Photos, when it is available next week, will be sold at Zarzour's, which is on Rossville Avenue behind the Fire Hall #1 on Main Street. Other books in the Chattanooga Photo Series can be purchased there from Shannon Fuller.
