IMAGE FROM THE BOOK, page 52: View looking South from 7th Street showing backfill and the Biltmore Hotel's parking garage,  Atlanta, Fulton Co., GA, 1980.

 

"IF ONE OF TAYLOR'S PHOTOGRAPHS   manages to capture the enormity of the subway project and how it was achieved, it was a single black and white image looking south toward downtown from 7th Street.  In the foreground is a deep trench, with only dirt visible on the ground and the walls beginning to be boarded up on the sides.

It's a long way from completion, but you can begin to see how massive the scope of the digging was. Off in the distance, on the right, is the famed Atlanta Biltmore Hotel, which opened in 1924. And far off, in the direct path of the tunnel,
is the 47-story skyscraper, the AT&T Midtown Center, still under construction at the time (it would open in 1982).

In this image, Taylor managed to capture the past, present, and future of Atlanta. A city born in 1836,
it was now in the midst of an important, but difficult transition, one where people of all colors, from all backgrounds, happily, conveniently, and peacefully,
would ride on fast and clean trains that whisked them into and out of their beloved city."
