Description This sepia-toned photograph of the Chattanooga Bank building at the corner of Market and Eighth Streets. Erected 1928.

Metal rivets (the bottom-left bearing the words "DOUBLE COLA") appear to outline crosswalks.

The building is in the top-left-center of the photograph. Busy street corners at the base of the building and across from the building (the right-center) are shown. Cars are parked along the street and people wait to cross. Other buildings the can be seen include the Hamilton National Bank building in the center-right, the F. W. Woolworth Co's store, the Rone Jeweler jewelry store, Brown's Booterie, Holiday's, and McClellan's. A few other businesses can also be seen but their signs are partially hidden by street light poles.

A stamp on the back notates the photo was taken by Englerth's at 5 Ridgeside Road, Chattanooga 4, Tenn. A note written in pencil tells the holder of the photo to "return [it] to Chatt. Bk. Bldg." Other notes are related to measurement and reduction.
