A Vintage Postcard Tour of Old Atlanta, Early 1900's

These postcards are too fascinating not to share!  They are all located in my store at Birdhouse Books.  

Above, Atlanta by Night - early 1900's vintage.  The Flatiron Building is in the foreground.  This is the intersection of Peachtree and Broad.

Below, Hotel Ansley in Atlanta.

Above, Walton Office Building, Atlanta.  1911 postmark.

Below, Piedmont Hotel, Atlanta.  1920 postmark.

Below, "Just a Word From Atlanta - Hope to See You Soon."  Central Congregational Church, Atlanta.  1918 postmark.

Below, U.S. Post Office, Atlanta.  Early 1900's.

Particularly interesting to me - I had no idea this place ever existed!  Grant Park Skating Rink, Atlanta.  1911 postmark.  This is in the area where you now will find the Cyclorama and Zoo Atlanta.

You'll find these vintage postcards and more vintage Georgia (Atlanta, Savannah, more) items at Birdhouse Books.
