Post Card Tuesday: Nashville's Memorial Square

Happy election day! I hope you have taken the opportunity to vote, or are at least planning on it. In this view, we see the State Capitol, and while the Governor's office isn't at stake this time around, all of the state congressmen and half of the state senators are up for election.

With the Capitol in the background and War Memorial Auditorium on the left, most everything else in this photo is different than the way it appears here. Notably, The square is now a plaza and the Andrew Jackson Hotel is now the location of TPAC. Many post cards from these days that appear to be taken from the air are drawn from the artists best approximation of how everything might look, or it might be taken from the roof of the Hermitage Hotel.
