Good ones

7 Nov

Here are some good photos we found recently.

Nite club owners and employees in an unidentified area of Atlanta, Georgia protesting a decision by Lester Maddox to deter their business, 1967. (Atlanta History Center)

“We are the World” sings the crowd in an impromptu lovefest at the party celebrating John Waters’ visit to Atlanta last spring, 1987. (Atlanta History Center)

Unidentified women at a party given by Charles and Dorothy Ross at their home on Eleanor Terrace in the Collier Heights neighborhood, 1975. (Atlanta History Center)

In 1958, Emory University opened Thomas Hall, Hopkins Hall, and Smith Hall, known collectively as “the complex” as a residence for Emory women. (Emory University Archives Photograph Collection)

Click on any of those to go deeper down the rabbit hole. The Lester Maddox protest and Ross party are especially fun.

    Those hairstyles need to come back.

    The civil engineer responsible for those Emory dorms probably had a heart attack when he saw that picture.

    Is there some way to flip through the photos in a series, e.g. the Ross Party photos? Or even just show a list of all of the photos in a series? I couldn’t figure out how to show the whole group.

      Chris – It’s weird; you have to click on one of the tags in the “Description” line. For the Ross Party, “Ross” is the best tag to only pull up the photos for that. It’s not very intuitive.
