Photographer's Note

LITTLE FIVE POINTS is a district on the east side of Atlanta, which has become famous as a kind of alternative hotspot. With independent shops, bars, restaurants and venues, it is a melting pot of subcultures and the Bohemian center of the Southern States.

This great little neighborhood was where we began and ended our grand tour of the South. With its alternative vibe it felt a bit like home to us.

THIS PICTURE shows the Variety Playhouse (originally known as the Euclid Theatre). The history of this venue located on Euclid Avenue goes back to the 1940's. Originally it was built as a cinema. Its great art deco style still survives!

These days it is still in business and hosts a variety of music acts including rock, indie, electronic, funk, country, folk, bluegrass, jazz, blues and world music.

Guess who was playing when we visited Atlanta?
