Driving in Atlanta 1987 & 1990

I often regret that I didn't stick a video camera on my dashboard and drive around Atlanta back in the 80s and early 90s. Thankfully, a few others did exactly that and have posted the videos on Youtube.

This first one is from Youtube user reillync and was shot in August 1987. It's interesting to see the construction mess during the widening of the downtown connector.

dirtypairxx posted this one from 1990 or 1991. It begins in southwest Atlanta and then heads north on Peachtree. You can see what the Margaret Mitchell House really looked like before the restoration.


  1. I had seen the one from '91 but not '87. Rockin' out to Power 99, no less. Very cool.

  2. Just another concrete jungle...I was born in Atl. in1957 a great place to grow up..Wonderful memories made there will last me thanks to my offspring that were also born there Garden Hills Brookhaven InmanPark will always be a part of who I am.....
