1112 Peachtree Street in 1958.  I’m mildly obsessed with the Dutch gables and the Doric columns on the second story porch. Midtown Atlanta.

Peachtree at 6th Street looking north, circa 1955.  The building to the right eventually held Backstreet, the large building in the foreground on the left is now the site of Gordon Biersch, and the structure in the left background is now Peachtree Lofts.  Midtown Atlanta

Technically in SoNo instead of Midtown, but such an interesting house I had to include it. The picture is captioned Prescott Place @ Peachtree Street, 1955.  The closest I can find to Prescott Place is Prescott Street, which extends for a tiny distance off West Peachtree Street, behind Emory University Hospital Midtown.  My guess is that the rest of the street was closed at some point for the hospital’s expansion.
