This collection is comprised of more than 300 maps and other documents that date back to MARTA’s beginning in the mid-1960s, and depict the planning decisions that the organization made during the 1960s and early 1970s. There are examples of both projects that came to fruition, and those that did not.
Our friends at Georgia State University have just launched a new resource, Works Progress Administration Maps of Atlanta. The site features over 950 maps including the 1940 Report of the Real Property, Land Use, and Low Income Housing Area Survey of metropolitan Atlanta, a 1936-1938 Atlanta Cadastral Survey, and a partially incomplete series of Fulton County land use maps from 1937-1940. You can also search the collection within DLG.
