Knoxville, Tennessee - Then and Now

Magnolia Motel - 2660 Magnolia Ave.

A later view from 1970.

2660 Magnolia Ave. Impressive sign. I bet you could see it for blocks at night. Great cars in the lot. Looks maybe mid-50s. The car is a poor print, not a bad scan. That red TV is great. Notice the walkway across the parking lot to the sun deck.


Today Magnolia Ave. is a scary place. This hotel is likely frequented by prostitutes.



Here you see the window treatment that used to be blue and the place where the great sign used to be.
