Copies of books in the Historic Chattanooga Photos series by Chattanoogan.com are still available at Zarzour's Restaurant and by mail.
A fourth, and perhaps final, volume, Old Chattanooga Photos, is planned to be issued later this year.
Railroads In And Around Chattanooga, featuring Chattanooga's intriguing railroad history, has 69 chapters and covers rail history here and in surrounding towns.
The book, with many photos by Wes Schultz, has 568 pages and 1,546 photos and maps.
It is $35, plus $6 for shipping and handling.
There are some remaining copies of the third edition of The Remarkable Stokes Collection of early Chattanooga photos The price of the soft-cover book, which includes some 700 early Chattanooga views, is $35, including tax, plus $6 for shipping and handling.
The pictures were passed down to great-granddaughter, Connie Cooper Jones, who graciously allowed their publication. The over-sized, clear photos have been kept in several cardboard boxes for over a century. Most had not previously been published. The most recent photo in the collection is around 1920, and many are much older. This book has almost 600 pages.
Also still available are copies of the new Paul Hiener's Historic Chattanooga. Mr. Hiener, a longtime Chattanooga printer and lifelong resident, collected over 3,000 historic pictures of his beloved hometown. He made some of the photos available through a four-volume set called Chattanooga Yesterday and Today. The Hiener family in April 1985 donated the more than 3,000 historical Chattanooga photographs in his collection to the Chattanooga Public Library. They were eventually cataloged and are now viewable on the library's website.
The 253-page Hiener book includes over 700 photos. It is in an 11x8 1/2 format with a soft cover.
The price of the book is $35, which includes the sales tax. For mailing, add $6 for shipping and handling.
The railroad, Stokes and Hiener books are still available from Shannon at Rossville Avenue behind the fire hall on Main Street.
There are a small number of Stokes books left and a limited number of railroad books.
Zarzour's, which has been operated by the same family since 1917, is open for lunch from 11-2 Monday-Friday.
