Atlanta Time Machine

Ever wonder what downtown Atlanta looked like in the past? What used to be in the store on the corner? The Atlanta Time Machine is a website that takes archival photographs from the Georgia State University Libraries Special Collections and Archives Department and pairs them with current pictures of the same location. It provides an interesting look at the development of parts of metro Atlanta.
