A Stretch of Main Street . . . 100 Years Ago

Top: A view of Main Street circa 1907 looking south from West Cleveland Avenue. The first three buildings in the foreground are still standing. According to the 1920 Atlanta City Directory, the space that is currently the Corner Tavern was occupied by Dr. T. F. Guffin (physician) and Dr. J. A. Yeast (dentist). The Turning Point Chiropractic & Wellness Center was Christians Pharmacy and the H&R Block was W. F. Upchurch Meats. The Uptown Sports Bar & Grill was occupied by the East Point Post Office on its north side and R. D. Moore (grocer) to the south, and the professional office building (2791 Main Street) was the Bank of East Point. — Marguerite Murray
