Skyline (Nashville Too)


Product Description

OE stands for Open Edition Print

The Nashville skyine, as it appears in 1986, shows much of the excitement of a city "on the move". New structures are added in the downtown area every year...giving a "picture" that frequently changes.

At the extreme left is the Union Station, completed in 1900 and renovated in 1986, which is a prominent symbol of the great Nashville transportation facilities. This includes the recent addition of the American Airlines "hub" system.

At the far right is One Nashville Place, representing the new faces on the skyline. It is one of the "fresh looks"...along with the architecturally handsome Third National Bank building in the middle right and the brand new Convention Center Hotel in the center spotlight. These structures, along with many other office and corporate headquarters buildings, stand as a reminder of the outstanding commercial and professional aspects of the city.

In front of the Convention hotel is the "heaven pointed" spire of the First Baptist Church. It represents the varied religious elements that form a firm foundation for a stable Nashville. To the left of it is the old federal customs house...which is a reminder that the city is home to many governmental and civic agencies on several levels of importance. The highest form of government is indicated by the top of the State Capitol (peeking around the hotel). The Tennessee Performing Arts Center (the darker building in the center), the Ryman Auditorium (side view) and the downtown hotels are visual proof that entertainment, music and tourism are all important elements in the "fabric" of this great city.
