  1. Many of the county traffic signals had red on the top and green in the middle. Both red and green would be illuminated for a few seconds when the signal was changing from green to red. The bottom lens was either yellow or red and served as a blinking light after 10:00 pm. I know these existed in 1957 but they mostly gone by 1960.

  2. BTW: Old Hickory Blvd and Franklin Pike was only a blinker. Brentwood was only a wide spot in the road. There was no signal at Harding Road and Woodmont Blvd. when my family moved to Nashville in the spring of 1957.

  3. I may have been the person that requested this... dont know who else would of. This was an incredible history that filled in many blanks and just maybe I can take it to another level with this information... Thank you so much for such details regarding the Hunters lane area. Great job!
