This early photograph has the mark of Giers Art Gallery, Nashville Tennessee.  It measures 9+ by 7 inches.  It is very dingy with creases on the left edge.  I have a hunch that this was taken in Bellevue as Giers lived in this area.

Click image to enlarge
Short billhead for a famous hotel in Lebanon Tn.  Folds and some crumpling.

https://www.wilsonlivingmagazine.com/horn-springs-resort/ This is an interesting article on this famous hotel.

"Once upon a time in Lebanon, Tennessee a full service hotel sat on the west side of town. The establishment offered up a gourmet dining experience, bowling alley and dance hall. But the most important and perhaps the biggest draw to Horn Springs Resort was the mineral water that was tapped, bottled and sold to guests."

Roger Williams University-Nashville-Cover
Item #: NEW-0016300

Click image to enlarge
This is an advertising cover addressed to Roger Williams University in Nashville Tn.  The cancel is from Cincinnati Ohio.  Journal and Messenger in Cincinnati. Torn in two places with a tear down the left edge.  The flap on the back is missing as well.

Here is some information about the university taken from Wikipedia.

Roger Williams University in Nashville, Tennessee was an historically black college. It was created in 1866 as one of numerous schools established in the South by the American Baptist denomination, and became the largest Baptist college in the area for educating African Americans. Protestant mission groups sponsored new educational facilities for the freedmen. The college was named for Roger Williams, the founder to the First Baptist Church in America. Daniel W. Phillips, a white minister and freedmen's missionary from Massachusetts, taught the first classes. It helped educate numerous African-American teachers and other leaders in the South throughout the 19th century, including William Madison McDonald, who became an influential Republican politician in Texas. In 1929, the university became involved in mergers that eventually culminated in the formation of LeMoyne–Owen College

Overton Hall Farm-Nashville-1911-LH-Cover
Item #: NEW-0015149

Click image to enlarge
Advertising letter sheet signed with the stamp of Robert Ferrell featuring a Berkshire hog and a Tennessee Bred Jersey cow.  There is an advertising cover with a Nashville cancel and on the back two cancels, one from Duck River Tennessee and Williamsport Tennessee.  See scan.

Here is a brief history of this farm found on the web:

Overton Hall, "the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Maxwell Overton was built in 1900 by Mr. Overton. The land on which Overton Hall stands was granted by the United States government to Jesse Maxwell, the great grandfather of its present owner, for services in the Revolutionary War.” Overton was a businessman and stockbreeder, and he built the home for his wife Saidee Williams, daughter of banker John P. Williams. Overton Hall was built on the original Travellers’ Rest south of Nashville, and he ran a farm, famous for the breeding of Berkshire hogs and Jersey cattle. The second owners Herbert and Ritchey Farrell renamed it Crieve Hall, after a family ancestral home in Northern Ireland. It stood until the early 1950s when it was razed for a housing development. The Tudor brick home was located about nine miles south of downtown Nashville, two miles north of Brentwood and east of Franklin Pike. One of its streets is Farrell Parkway, named for the family.

Item #: NEW-0011340

This is more like a booklet than a program.  Holes on the side where a ribbon probably was but it is later stapled.  Chipping of the pages on the edges, the worst being on the cover which shows a sepia copy of a print of James K. Polk that is pasted on.  The same type of illustration appears on subsequent pages, including General Nathan Bedford Forrest, the chapel at the Hermitage, scene at Lookout Mountain, Matthew F Murray, George B Balch, Thomas H Benton, and Gov James B Frazier.  There is a Menu, Toasts, Program, Lists of Officers and Members and Honorary Members.  This society was made up of Tennesseans living in St Louis.  I don't know if it is still in existence or not.  Please view both scans to see the condition.  Note on the second scan the area that vermin had feasted on through several of the heavy stock pages.
