Imagining Atlanta 2010

In 1910, Greater Atlanta Magazine imagined that Peachtree Street would look like the above in 2010.

I’m not sure what’s weirder: the giant birds on columns or the space-age Eiffel Tower.

From the Atlanta History Center’s Facebook Page.  They have some other pretty interesting historic photos/drawings on their Wall.

  1. apparently we weren’t supposed to have any vegetation! where are the parks, green spaces, tree-lined streets?!

    i guess they forgot to consult Olmsted before conjuring up the future. 🙂

  2. That is one mighty fine looking phallus. I like the blimps/sail boats… I guess those are “buses”

  3. I have to say those buildings look much prettier and more attractive than a lot of the stuff around now.

    1. I think that’s the connector going *above* downtown.
