Hello all,



I was reading a thread here a few months ago discussing night life and such in 1980's. I was sharing some of what I read with my mother and she really enjoyed, "going down memory lane" so to speak. I was wondering if anyone here has some photos they would like to share from that time era. I think it would also be cool to kind of compare how things have changed, or stayed the same. Doesn't have to be Atlanta proper, stuff from the suburbs would be welcomed as well.



I tried searching to see if such a thread existed, with no luck.



I'll see what I can dig up from around the house and post as well.



Thanks!


(I was born in '91, fyi)

No photos but I remember in the early 80's that bars in Cobb County closed at Midnight on Saturday night. The place to go out was Penrods at Akers Mill Plaza. When that closed at midnight you could then move the party over into Fulton County and Atlanta.

Great photos. Interesting to see how the city has changed. It seems like just about every area I am familiar with in the metro has really changed. I went back to Greenville, SC where I lived in the 80's and several parts of town have not changed very much. The Beltline/Old 4th ward to me is one of the most drastic changes. I go to areas now and it seems like a completely different place than it was in the 90's.

The Keytar guy is living every middle-aged suburban dad's dream.

I was a bartender with the guitar player's BIL. They used to come in the club from time to time. Ladies galore on Cheshire Bridge Road.

Forget about the reversible lanes on Northside Drive or in Roswell. The ones on Stone Mountain Hwy were the stuff of nightmares.
