The streets of Atlanta looked a bit different in 1958 than they do now. Take a ride through the streets of our city as they were 60 years ago.
There are a few recognizable landmarks still standing (such as the Varsity, seen above from the other side of North Avenue), but many of these locations are completely unrecognizable.
The Rialto has changed through the years, but it’s still there at the corner of Forsyth and Luckie streets. These days, it hosts mostly live music and arts performances instead of movies.
Buford Highway is still home to Northeast Plaza, but the Colonial Stores grocery is long gone. See more of Atlanta’s streets as they were in 1958 at the link below.
