Atlanta Beltline bridges (Eastside Trail)

The Atlanta Beltline folks have done an outstanding job transforming an abandoned rail corridor into an urban amenity. The East Side Trail‘s corridor retains a fair amount of its industrial and commercial landscape legibility. In addition to the rehabilitated brick buildings that punctuate its length, there is the landmark former Sears and Roebuck building and a couple of surviving railroad bridges.

These Instragram shots are eye candy for the industrial history enthusiast.
