Awesome idea for a thread Tooter, it has so much potential!

I have a number old scans and plan to do more when I visit family in the months ahead. I'll throw some up here soon. Also, we should check Don Sutherland's snow archive page. He has pictures of snow storms going way back in many areas including Tennessee.

Penny post cards from around Tennessee! Only problem is not all of them have dates listed. Here is an aerial view of UT campus from 1944:

I scanned a box of old family slides that mostly date back to about 1950. There are a bunch of interesting things to see that are in full color. Here is one:



This is my dad standing on the old Danville railroad bridge that went across Kentucky Lake. The bridge is no longer there.

Good pics guys. I'm a sucker for historical pics. Bye they way, if UT football keeps sucking they can probably reduce Neyland back down to the old 1944 stadium.
