Photo of the Week: Unidentified Street Scene, Atlanta, 1946

Unidentified street scene, Atlanta, GA, 1946

Can you confirm the location of this unidentified Atlanta street scene which was photographed in 1946?  The building on the left is a Sherwin Williams Paint Company store and therefore it could be Gordon Street.

Online photo sleuthing is one way archivists and other information seekers benefit from collaborative intelligence facilitated by Web 2.0 social software.   Additional information can be found in Joshua M. Avery’s The Democratization of Metadata:  Collective Tagging, Folksonomies and Web 2.0.
