Atlanta Street Art in Little Five Points
Almost all these pieces are in an old eastern neighborhood of Atlanta called Little Five Points. Most buildings and design dates from around 1900-1930, with a sprinking of new buildings. Atlanta's population surged from around 90,000 to over 290,000 (It was only 9,000 before the Civil War) in this period, which saw the development of many walkable, streetcar suburbs.
Little Five Points has an amazing number of vintage clothing stores; lots of planned murals and high quality street art. I wish we had more time to explore here.
