THE CUMBERLAND RIVER
Here Comes The General Jackson
With her stacks flipped down to clear the bridges. This view is looking south easterly
Turning about and preparing to dock. That Big Thing across the river is the Coliseum. It's an NFL Stadium and home of The Titans.
RIVERBOATS ...SORT OF CONJURES UP THE IMAGE OF DAVY CROCKETT
Fort Nashboro The Original Town Of Nashville
This settlement was built on the river as a trading post in 1779. This is not the original but a reproduction that was built when Jack & I were going to Auto Mechanics
back in Bellport (1962)
HOW IT MIGHT OF LOOKED IN DAVY'S DAY
Thanks to Photoshop I took out the sidewalks & power lines
WHAT DAVY CROCKETT DIDN'T SEE......LOOKING WEST ACROSS THREE CENTURIES
The 18th Century Fort, 19th Century 1st Ave. Riverfront Buildings, 20th Century "BATMAN" Building
FOOL ON THE HILL ?
On our way back to my house, we passed by the backside of the State Capital Building which sits on the highest hill in town.
On any Mon - Friday when the legislature is in session there are many fools inside it. Trust Me I Know!
And just in case Jack was getting homesick we passed by the Chrysler Dealer too. Jack has worked for Chrysler almost since they stopped making DeSoto's. I told him the tale of how I nearly drove off that lot in 1989 in a Forest Green '35 DeSoto Airflow!
