  1. Hi Daniel–so nice to make your acquaintance, especially since we are in the same state! Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and for now wanting to follow along on my life’s little adventure. My son is getting married in Savannah, so I’ve been spending more time there as of late, more so than during my entire life of living in this state! …and I confess I’ve fallen in love with the city. Many of my former students have studied at SCAD, so I certainly have a link 🙂
    I look forward to pursuing your blog as it has so much to offer—
    Again, thank you—Julie

  2. You have an excellent blog: I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve so far seen and will return to enjoy some more! Sadly, we’ve not been to Georgia or Atlanta yet (Texas and No Man’s Land, Oklahoma, were out last US of A adventures), but your blog convinces us we must get there before we die! Glad you like “In search of unusual destinations”. The next blog will examine the riverside north of Bilbao city centre: some Spanish versions of US of A sacrifice zones will be on display! Phil.

  3. Hi Wayne, thanks for following my blog. I’ve enjoyed ready yours too! I especially enjoyed your post, One of Atlanta’s First Ah-Ha Moments. I’ve lived in Atlanta since 1998, and it’s so fascinating to read your take on the recent history of the city’s development.

    1. Thanks for your feedback and interest, Evelyn. It has been thrilling to watch Atlanta grow, seemingly overnight, from a fun city you could zip around all over the city in a few minutes by car, to my enjoyment of using the subway for many years while living in midtown and watching it explode into a beautiful flower. I LOVE Atlanta. Thanks for reading.

  4. Wayne, I purchased a home you designed in Atlanta. I was wondering if you would remember some of the original suppliers for the project? Thanks.

  5. Great blog, looking at what you’ve covered I don’t know why I’m just now stumbling onto it. We write a little about what we like to see in the city on our local ATL G+ communities. Hearing shared discussions of ideas & possibilities in the public are so much more rewarding than finger-pointing, although I’ve done that too.

  6. Wayne:

    I enjoyed your collection of homes on peachtree so much. I am a history buff and love studying the architectural and design history of our town. I have often thought of assembling some kind of historical chronology of old peachtree and then today discovered your blog.

    Are you the same Wayne Anderson that is friends with Randy and David O’Neil, Chuck Podgusrki, and Diane Milla ? I have worked for David for 15 years and believe I know you though these other friends of mine.

    Thanks again,

    Marty matson

  7. Wayne, I was very happy to read your blog regarding Glenridge Hall. With the announcement of Mercedes, my professional historic preservation colleagues and I are terrified of the fate of this historic site. Is anyone aware that the antiques in the home are being auctioned in New Orleans in March!? Why can’t the house and a few surrounding acres be saved? Where is the uproar in this community? There is so little historic fabric left in Sandy Springs, can the city put some restrictions on demolition? I know, I know all about the regulations, easements, etc. I’ve worked in the field for over 20 years. My heart is breaking. LOVED your recommendation for Glenridge, by the way.

  8. I am wondering if someone here can help me out with a question. In house hunting in Atlanta, I’ve come across a few older homes (early 1900s) with what looks like a raised patio near the rear of the yard. A couple of these had ‘carriage’ or ‘guest’ houses on them. What was the original use of these patios/foundations? (An example is seen in this airbnb offering for a “Quaint Bungalow in Candler Park”: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/517617

    It’s just a matter of curiosity, but it would be interesting to know if there is any historical significance. Thank you.

    1. Yes, they were indeed carriage houses if built around 1900, after that they were usually small garages. Many areas were accessible by streetcars, until the automobile took over. Today, homeowners retain the slab or building outline to enable future construction use– “grandfathered” from current zoning/property line setbacks.

  9. Wayne, my family owns the Olde Landmark building at 35 Barnard St., and we are trying to find an image of the building and/or Ellis Square from the late 1800s if possible. It was built in 1874. I came across your blog while trying to do some research and thought you may know how I could find something. Thanks in advance for your help. Tom Shimada
