Images of East Tennessee

This digital collection contains photographs and postcards from the mid-nineteenth century through the late twentieth century. The collection features images from across the East Tennessee region, but is particularly rich in images of Knoxville. Scenes include exteriors and interiors of buildings (such as homes, businesses, schools, churches, hospitals), airports, vistas, and people, as well as many photographs of the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville. The collection shows the changes and development of Knoxville and the larger East Tennessee region over the century.
