Dodson W. Hancock photographs, February 1954 (VIS 131)
This collection contains photographs of cities located south of Atlanta, Georgia in Fulton County. Included are images of College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto, Red Oak, and Union City. Many of these cities were originally part of Campbell County, a county that went bankrupt during the Great Depression and was then merged with Fulton County. Photographer Hancock reveals the former Campbell County cities in their 1954 condition. Many of these photographs were taken from the highways ventured by the photographer and provide scenes from business districts, cemeteries, schools, farms, drive-in theaters, government offices, and private residences.
The Dodson W. Hancock photograph collection contains 31 black and white photographic prints, all of which are digitized and available on this database.
