A look back at the economic growth of Atlanta in the late 1980s

Atlanta, Georgia as seen in 1985 has changed greatly to become, in 2018, one of America’s most dynamic business and entertainment metropolitan areas.

This series of newspaper articles, from the late 1980s, takes a look back on the growth of Atlanta prior to hosting the Democratic National Convention in 1988 and before hosting the 1996 Olympic Games.  The city’s Westin Peachtree Plaza once dominated the Atlanta skyline, then came the years post 1986 and 1987.
