Title

Lookout Mountain

Description

This image shows a railroad foreshortened by a steep slope, displaying Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Forestry and rocky slopes surround the path of the vertically displayed railroad.

This postcard displays a slightly fainted image of a remote wooden railroad path that leads up to a tunnel that is located at the top of a high mountain. Alongside the railroad tracks are a plethora of electrical posts, trees, and grass that leads up to the mountain. (N.S)

Archivist's Comment

IC 5/27/15

T.C.O. 9/22/15
- edited Orientation from "Landscape" to "Portrait".

N.S. 11/13/2015
- I added two subject headings (Tunnel and Cliff)
- Check previous archivist description for grammatical errors. I added a period to two sentences in the description as well as rearranged, and added, a view words to make the paragraph flow more smoothly.
- I also added my own description of what is being displayed on the postcard.
