Ross Ingram Photographs

Collection number: ahc.VIS165

Scope and Contents of the Records

This collection contains snapshots of various neighborhoods in Atlanta, Georgia as well as portraits of members of the Weaver and Drake families as well as some of their extended families. Most of the snapshots of Atlanta were taken in the 1960s, but the family portraits are from an earlier period, and were evidently purchased by Mr. Ingram. The neighborhoods included in this collection are Ansley Park, Buttermilk Bottoms, Grant Park, Inman Park, Lower Midtown, Pittsburgh, and West End. The photographs include images of private residences, street scenes, and views of the Atlanta skyline, parks, churches, and storefronts. The collection contains images of some of the oldest houses in Atlanta, including the home of Edward Peters, the Otis Thrash Hammonds House, and houses in Inman Park built for Bishop Warren Candler and businessman Ernest Woodruff. Other areas of the city include Peachtree Center, Five Points, and Central Congregational Church in Midtown. One of the highlights of collection is a set of images from the Pittsburgh neighborhood that include photographs of private residences, store fronts, an industrial plant, and unidentified youths posing for pictures.
