You can win a set of all the books in the Chattanooga Photo Series of old Chattanooga photos sponsored by Chattanoogan.com with a drawing at Zarzour's Restaurant.

All next week, diners at the venerable Southside eatery can put their names in the box for a drawing when the latest book in the series comes out the following week.

It is the fourth book in the collection called the Chattanooga Photo Books made possible by Chattanoogan.com. The others are The Remarkable Stokes Collection, Railroads in and Around Chattanooga and Paul Hiener's Historic Chattanooga.

The new book includes almost 300 pages. It features hundreds of scenes from downtown, local landmarks, rivers and streams, parades, medical, banks, churches, entertainment, parks and cemeteries and auto and livery.

The book is highlighted by sections on Chattanooga's restaurants as well as its hotels, motels and apartments of yesteryear.

Chattanooga in Old Photos, when it is available around Oct. 15, will be sold at Zarzour's, which is on Rossville Avenue behind the Fire Hall #1 on Main Street. Other books in the Chattanooga Photo Series can be purchased there from Shannon Fuller.
