Tucker, Way Back When

I've put together two montages of aerial photographs of the Tucker area from 1960 and 1972.  These were found on the Digital Library of Georgia web site.  Many interesting features, if you enjoy that sort of thing.  I've highlighted known landmarks and major roads to help get you oriented.

Multiple images were stitched together so you may find a little jump in things here and there.

Tucker, circa 1972


  1. I wonder if the digital library has enough data to make a map story

    Here is the story of Ames Iowa as an example of how the tool can be used

  2. The story of Ames, Iowa was intriguing but I can only imagine the amount of data mining required to generate it. Tucker may have over 20,000 properties within its limits, and one would have to work through the entire DeKalb County property database for each and every one.

    The best I can offer is my previous post, DeKalb County Suburban Development, 1945-1971, which links to a map illustrating when each home in DeKalb County was built, in 5 year increments between 1945 and 1971.

    Thank you for the reference to Mapstory.
