Yes, I’m on a nostalgia trip here, but when I lived in Athens, Little Italy was my go-to place for good pizza and better sandwiches. The place was open until 4am, had unbeatable prices, and was one of the last few places one could find a real arcade cabinet (Strikers 1945 tucked into the back corner of the dining room)! I don’t know how much it has changed with the rest of downtown (I pray that it hasn’t), but 15 years ago, it was the place to be!

Thirty years ago, a new centre of commerce was being built in the sleepy semi-rural community of Kennesaw, Georgia. Local resident A.E. Howard had the foresight to document the area on video. His son, Art was decent enough to upload the video to YouTube for us to enjoy on its thirtieth anniversary.
This is what my hometown looked like in my early childhood. I remember riding in the back seat of the family sedan, winding through the small neighbourhood roads until we eventually reached “The Four Lane” (US-41) that took us south to Barrett Parkway and the Town Center at Cobb shopping mall.
It’s hard to believe that the same rural, tree-lined residential properties shown in this time capsule now comprise the commercial heart of northwest metro Atlanta.
In Georgia, if you want to read the law, you have to pay for it. Also, something about government documents aren’t supposed to be protected by Copyright because they’re [supposedly] automatically Public Domain?
