I had to look up to see if it was the State Capitol or Capital. I thought it is was the "o" version and the "a" version was the city, but I wasn't 100% sure and I didn't want to look dumb. ( I didn't have to tell you that I looked it up, but I figure I am not the only one who hasn't used this bit of knowledge in 20 something years and someone else may need a little refresher.)
This is the Capitol building in Atlanta, complete with the gold dome. Made from gold found in the Dahlonega area. "Gold in them thar hills." is said to originate from the first U.S. gold rush in Georgia not from the later gold rush in California.
It was built over an old a rail road site that was destroyed by fire. You know the one, the fire from US history and a movie. (This is just an old picture of mid 1800's Atlanta that I found on line somewhere. Sorry I don't have the link.)
I use to pass this bridge going to work sometimes. The office where I had a meeting on Monday was next door. The bridge goes no where on both sides. It must have some sort of historic significance for it to be still standing.
These shots are from another building near the capitol. So very Deco. I am sure that is Georgia marble.
Ya know.......Georgia marble would make good counter tops.
