Documentary update (part 2)

These fifteen one-of-a-kind photographs were recently introduced into Picnooga’s collection. They are dated 1927 and depict construction scenes from the Terrell Electric Company. The work occurred between Sixth and Ninth Street (MLK Blvd.) on Broad, according to the envelope they were found in. However, one photo was taken between the John Ross Memorial Bridge (Market Street Bridge) between First Street and the bridge.

Sadly, these photos do not show evidence of below-grade storefronts along Broad Street as according to some oral reports from the early 1970s when surveys were done. Still, these photos will be subject to further research and no doubt will show up in the documentary.

We’ve recently adjusted the final total needed to produce the documentary as a result of an in-kind contribution of a heavy-duty tripod. We’re looking to raise a total of $8,000 by the end of the year to be fully up and running. To date, we’ve raised $4,720. Visit diggingdoc.com for more information.

The additional $3,280 will help cover audio, lighting, data storage, and additional lenses.
