July 1978

Rotting billboard for The Hungry Fisherman, along old 280 near "The Narrows" (photo by Russell Wells, 10/06/2007)

Lighter ... as in just two inches of breading on it??  (as opposed to the usual three or four)

Good ... Lord ....

And it was so long ago that Atlanta's circular parking lot was just U.S. 285!  (So, if all the interstates are shown here with U.S. Highway shields, does that mean downtown traffic was all bottlenecked along I-41, I-29, I-19, I-78 and I-278?)

Just 20 minutes in Atlanta traffic will make you grateful for Highway 280....
