Atlanta’s urban development, and political and social history are well documented through thousands of photographs from photojournalists and corporate photographers, primarily dated 1930-1990. Photographers from the Atlanta Journal, Atlanta Constitution, Southline, Atlanta Voice, Atlanta Inquirer, and other publications produced photographs documenting the rise of the African American political establishment in Atlanta, the Civil Rights Movement, and professional and collegiate sporting events, including the Atlanta Braves and the Masters golf tournament. Thousands of images document Atlanta’s growth and changing physical landscape through aerial views and cityscapes.
