What was it to walk through downtown Maryville, Tennessee, in 1920? What would be different today? What buildings would have lined the streets? How many of them are still standing? What sights, sounds, and smells would have caught the attention of the pedestrian? What neighbors and business people would have been on the sidewalk or in the buildings? What would they have been doing?
This book published by Blount County Friends of the Library, presents some representative highlights of 1920, with information drawn from books, newspapers, maps, interviews, and library files. Sale of the book, written by reference librarian Brennan LeQuire, benefits Friends of the Library.
