ATLANTApix: Georgia-Pacific Tower

Georgia-Pacific Tower
Georgia-Pacific Tower
This year, the 75th anniversary of the publication of Gone With the Wind, fans will turn to a skyscraper. Why, you ask? Gone With the Wind, the film, in 1939 premiered at the Lowe's Grand Theatre in downtown Atlanta where today stands the signature pink granite Georgia-Pacific Tower.

Remnants of the Lowe's Grand Theatre can be found in various places in Atlanta, including Houston's Restaurant on Peachtree Street in Buckhead, where bricks from the Lowe's were used to construct the restaurant; and The Tabernacle, a former church in downtown turned music venue, where a magnificent chandelier from the Lowe's Grand hangs.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!

I didn't know about Lowe's leftovers. I watched it burn from the roof of the Hurt Building.
