Nashville Public Library Digital Collections

About this collection

Metro Nashville Archives has the only full run of Nashville newspapers in existence, and is currently unveiling digital copies of unique weekly photo sections from this collection. The selected pages span 1926-1933 and employ the rotogravure printing process, which offers fine detail and subtle variations in tone while allowing for rapid mass production. Not only are these prints rare and beautiful, they also showcase our city’s rich visual heritage during years of economic prosperity and struggle. Highlights include the little-documented Providence community, early aviation, Depression-era dams, Camp Boxwell, and a rare genealogical gem: local baby portraits.
