Photos, Good News, and More

This month's Nashville history post is letting photography do the talking, with a variety of slideshows for all to enjoy. Starting with a tribute to all medical workers for their dedicated service during these trying times, to finishing with a little more of "Some Good News - Archives Edition." 

As May is National Photography Month, I thought I'd let the below slideshows do the talking for me. And, I thought I'd try covering a few different topics in the process, so hopefully this blog post will have something for everyone. 

And since this blog post is published the weekend before Memorial Day, I'd also like to offer a special and enduring thank you to all of our veterans out there. And of course, lets remember everyone that made the ultimate sacrifice during their service.
