This collection contains images of Atlanta's physical landscape, including buildings, streets, residences, office parks, retail stores, shopping malls, interstates, and railroads in neighborhoods within the city. Many of the photographs were probably used in presentations to business leaders and task forces that worked on projects related to economic development, transportation, housing, and urban design. The images illustrate the growth of the city, and changes that have occurred in the development of the downtown and Midtown areas during the 1960s and 1970s. In addition, the collection contains photographs of the city's public officials, and business leaders, and staff members of Central Atlanta Progress, as well as events such as parades, festivals, and presidential campaign visits by Richard M. Nixon. The collection also contains architectural drawings of planned areas in downtown Atlanta.
