We have gone to the archives and found some old photographs of Kingsport 'way back when'. These are photos of the way Kingsport use to look and various construction projects from the last century. Most of the photos are from the Kingsport Archives, staffed by Martha Egan who serves as Archivist for the City; and, some of the photos are from the 1946 Rotary Club publication 'The Planned Industrial City'. Most of the City photos were taken by J.M. Broyles, who was the City Photographer in the '50s and '60s.
Our Thanks to Mr. Cham Percer and the Rotary Board for their permission to use their photos. Also, Thank You Martha for your help. For more information about the archives please visit their website.
