The Beatles play the new Atlanta Stadium

Paul, “It's loud isn't it? …Great!“ …the band had grown accustomed to being drowned out by their audience and could rarely hear their own music. McCartney in particular seemed to be delighted with the sound at Atlanta Stadium and Baker Audio was later approached by The Beatles’ management to consult on some subsequent U.S. shows.-from Donnie Thompson’s “A Hard Day’s Night in Dixie”

Six Flags Over GEORGIA!

They celebrated birthdays and anniversaries by eating at downtown Atlanta establishments.

The new expressways cut out the middle of an extremely derelict area housing mostly very poor blacks. It also made bearable the drive from downtown offices to newly built tract housing (for whites) surrounding old farm towns as far away as Doraville.

  • In 2001, The New York Times reported that the city population of Atlanta increased for the first time in 30 years. Now many newcomers of all races, Hispanic immigrants, and whites are moving to older neighborhoods in town.
  • Most are moving to avoid driving on the clogged expressways leading into and around the city.
