Each Friday, we’ll feature a photo from Picnooga highlighting Chattanooga history.
This photo of a postcard features the “new” Read House hotel in downtown Chattanooga.
“The new Read House, Chattanooga, Tenn., to be operated by the American Hotels Corporation, General J. Leslie Kincaid, President. This hotel was built by the citizens of Chattanooga at a cost of $2,500,000. An elaborate opening program has been arranged, beginning with the flag raising on July 5th and ending with a formal banquet on July 8th.”
