Sharing history so that everyone can enjoy...

Tennessee Aquarium Naturalist John Dever shared a unique panoramic print with David Moon of Picnooga. David arranged for it to be 'digitally donated' to the Chattanooga History Center and DeepZoomChattanooga. An image this wide and with so much detail was a great candidate for presenting via deep zoom.

Prior to creating the zoom seen here, I worked with the faded scans to bring out details and as much as possible, repair some damage that had occured over time.

About

Miller Brothers was established in Chattanooga in 1889. Their flagship location shown here was built in 1898 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. This thriving department store boasted east Tennessee’s first escalators. It was also known for having Chattanooga's only "subway," which consisted of an underground shopping area that tunneled beneath Broad Street to their home store at the corner of Seventh and Broad (as well as a connecting parking garage). The four-story store boasted two snack bars and a Tea Room as well as many amenities that are not to be found in any current retail establishment.

If all that shopping leaves you hungry. A 30¢ goose liver sandwich would surely rejuvenate.

Look familiar?

The windows behind the employees currently hosts Picnooga's Open Spaces Chattanooga display, celebrating (what else?) History!
