nostalgia tuesday.

This is what the ATL skyline used to look like. It was taken by my dad, from a hospital room, in 1977. The tallest building in the photo is the Peachtree Plaza hotel, now known as the Westin. It was once the tallest hotel in the world. Now, you can't even see it because it's dwarfed by all of the other skyscrapers. Atlanta now looks sort of like Gotham at night. It's nice. Certainly a far cry from this. Looks like it was a pretty muggy day too.
