Mapping Atlanta #1

June 5, 2009

Danny Feig-Sandoval runs a design-build remodeling company in town.  A couple years back, while working in the attic of a home in Candler Park, he discovered an old map of Atlanta from 1892, which the homeowner let him have.  In this segment, Danny discusses some details of this map, especially the fact that many of Atlanta’s creeks and streams were covered and run underground starting in the late 19th century.
