Last month, the Georgia Historical Society kindly shared with us a photo from their collection that illustrated the limits of the destruction Gen. William T. Sherman visited upon Atlanta. (See it here.) Today, we’re pleased to feature a companion image the GHS has just procured. The piece, from the same set of photographs, is titled “Peachtree Street, Post-Civil War Atlanta” and shows another view of the rebuilt business district.
Here’s a look at the reverse side:
“Peachtree Street, Post-Civil War Atlanta. GHS 1361-SG Georgia Historical Society stereograph collection. Georgia Historical Society, Savannah, Georgia.”
ECW thanks Dr. Todd Groce, president and executive director, and Nate Pedersen, manager of the archival and reference team–and of course the Georgia Historical Society itself–for sharing these images.
