June 1989

Downtown Johnson City, Tennessee

The buildings behind the pole can be seen in many old photos of the steam engines working downtown Johnson City. Look in Mal Ferrel's "Tweetsie Country" for a few of them. The old ET station, now the Free Service Tire Company, is to the left of these buildings across Buffalo Street. ET&WNC and Clinchfield tracks, many of them dual gauge, once ran where I'm standing and where State of Franklin Street is now, right up to the back of those buildings.
