They say it’s the journey, not the destination. And for some in the 1950s and 60s whose destination was Atlanta, the journey was more than mere conveyance, it was, in fact, Southern Tradition. For many, the trip is a lingering memory from childhood. For others, it was just how we lived back in the day, that day before divided, multi-lane, controlled access super highways connected everybody everywhere. The times and methods may change but there will always be a need to get from point A to point B and back again. And that is the subject of this week’s Stories of Atlanta.
