"Chattanooga,Tenn." (Hour Three) - At Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Walnut Street bridge — one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world — ANTIQUES ROADSHOW looks at carved wooden folk-art walking canes.
Highlights include an heirloom 18th-century Chippendale tall chest; a unique piece of presidential memorabilia: an “8-ball” presented to Harry Truman in 1948 by the Los Angeles Press Club; and a pristine Lionel train set, circa 1930, valued at $2,500 to $3,000.
