Skyline Reflections

For urbanophiles, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution photo compilation titled "Atlanta's changing skyline over the years" could be worth the 99-cent price of daily admission to get past the newspaper's paywall. The images span more than a century and prove that Atlanta, visually speaking, wasn't much more than modern-day Chattanooga until John Portman raised the roof in the mid-1970s with the Westin Peachtree Plaza. Makes you wonder what it'll look like in 50 more years.
