Just in Time for First Friday: Check Out the Walnut Street Garage Banners! 
Large banners depicting historic images have transformed the south wall of the Walnut Street Garage.

They're up and looking amazing!

The three large banners measure a total of 223 feet in length and 58 feet in height, and they're enhancing the aesthetics of the south wall of the Walnut Street Garage.

The banners are reproductions of historical photographs from the McClung Historical Collection: the historic Market House taken from Union Avenue, the exterior of Peter Kern Co. Confectioners, and a Vestal-bound streetcar on Gay Street. These are just three of more than 23,000 items preserved and made accessible through the McClung Collection's Digital Collection.

If you're enjoying First Friday tonight in downtown Knoxville, be sure to take a look at the new banners! Remember, the Walnut Street Garage is one of the downtown garages that offers free public parking on nights, weekends and holidays. All combined, there are more than 7,500 parking spaces in the downtown area.
