Here's a postcard showing
Piedmont Park's Lake Clara Meer as it appeared in the 1950s,
long before skyscrapers had arrived in midtown. The 2013
shot below makes visible Atlanta's dramatic growth
during the intervening 5 or 6 decades. I
took the accompanying 2013 photo from the east side of the lake looking
west, but I'm now
convinced I should've taken it from the west side of the lake mostly because
the 1910 boathouse
building isn't visible at all in
the earlier photo.
Use your imagination.
