Re-posting this excellent item by Bryan Perry from the GSU Student Innovation Fellows’ blog.  GIS, Maps and Data Services Librarian Joe Hurley and SIFs have been geo-tagging a collection of glass plate negative photographs from the 1920s. These beautiful images provide rare glimpses into the area around the Five Points Metro Station, and are particularly noteworthy for showing a number of storefronts that would be submerged by the viaduct into what became known as “Underground Atlanta” just before construction began.
