Here is how
I-85 looked in its infancy in 1954, when it was officially
known as the Northeast Expressway and provided a mere two
lanes in each direction, along with a grassy median and
greenery aplenty. In the distance, and visible in both
pictures, is the still standing Peachtree
Station, which opened in 1906 and remains in service
today as a passenger train station for the Amtrak
line. This view looks NE, toward Peachtree
Street. Top photo courtesy of the Georgia State
