Book - 2002
Rate this:
Filled with images from Atlanta's archives, this short history features the personalities and locales of the economic and cultural capital of the Southeast. At its founding in 1837, Atlanta was filled with saloons and brothels, such that it was more like an Old West frontier town than a white-gloved city of the Old South. Highlighting the city's rebirth from the devastation of the Atlanta Campaign to its renaissance beginning in the 1960s, Atlanta's troubling racialized past is underscored, and the city's historically rich neighborhoods, including Ansley Park, Buckhead, and Druid Hills, are celebrated.
