Smokey does Stumptown


If you grew up in Stumptown, you've probably heard stories about our brush with Hollywood fame: the filming of Smokey & The Bandit, circa 1975. Everybody knew somebody who's car was in a scene. Shot on location in Jonesboro, Fayetteville, McDonough and the Lakewood Fairgrounds, the film captures a lot of southside flavor in the background. I usually study '70s movies for the interiors and hairstyles, but this one's all about the exteriors.

Check out the then & now photos from Atlanta Time Machine. I particularly love the apocalyptic overgrowth at Lakewood.



The Atlanta Time Machine. Quite the find. Pop and I use to crawl under the fence there in lakewood(?) to fish in the lake there.

That is one of the coolest things I've seen.
