MARTA-Atlanta May 1985.

In May 1985, I’d traveled on Amtrak’s Crescent to Atlanta for a visit with my cousins.

Among the railway photographs I made on this trip using my father’s Rollei Model T was this view of the MARTA heavy rail rapid transit system.

It is one of only a rare few photos of Atlanta’s transit system in my collection, and until now remained unseen and unappreciated.

At the time I was using Plus X Professional, which, in retrospect wasn’t my favorite type of B&W film in the 120 format.
