The Old Modern - Then and Now

5 notes &

Hooper Building, Atlanta, Georgiafrom Library of Congress
Modern building from a collection I found documenting historic buildings on historic Auburn Avenue circa 1979. Auburn Avenue was just recently named AGAIN as one of the country’s most threatened historic places. For an urgent call to action on the state the street is in, please see this from Atlanta Magazine: "Atlanta’s neglect of the Sweet Auburn district is a civic shame."
From LoC:

11. 204-206 AUBURN AVENUE (Hooper Building) SOUTH ELEVATION - 126-255 Auburn Avenue (Commercial Buildings), Auburn Avenue, Atlanta, Fulton County, GA
