TAR 19 EP 12 "Go Out And Get It Done" (Atlanta, Georgia)

<< < (2/33) > >>

georgiapeach:
We have been waiting a long, long time for this!! Atlanta was way overdue for a visit.

And I hope it will be a great finale!

Other than being a gazillion degrees hot, humid as all get out, and a day of traffic from hell.... Sunday, July 10, 2011 was magical!!

And they couldn't have planned it better.... all of the locations were practically in my own backyard. :lol:

But this was a combined effort of the TAR Detective team. From our very first inkling (thanks WP!), through the weeks of careful planning, to days of prelocation scouting, to crucial on-the-day pitcrew support (thanks Chateau!), to the awesome and incredible onsite team who never missed a moment... right to the final mat, this was a carefully choreographed day!

And thanks to that entire team, we are able to bring you a taste of the TAR 19 Finale!

This was going to be a locations only taste...but since the final three has now been ID'd, we are now including some team photos as well. Finishing order will NOT be revealed, so if that is the only thing you care about...you are in the wrong place. After the first location, teams pics have been chosen for available clips only and the order seen may not reflect the actual times.
 
Otherwise, come along for an AMAZING day!!

=====================



Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operated by the Atlanta History Center, the Margaret Mitchell House is a turn-of-the century, three-story, Tudor Revival building where Margaret Mitchell lived and wrote her Pulitzer-Prize winning book, Gone With the Wind.

Built in 1899 by Cornelius J. Sheehan, the single-family home on fashionable Peachtree Street was converted into a ten-unit apartment building in 1919.


 
Margaret Mitchell and her husband, John Marsh, moved into Apartment No.1 in 1925, when the building was known as the Crescent Apartments. Mitchell’s apartment is the only interior space of the restored house that is preserved as an apartment and maintains original architectural features, including the famous leaded glass window which Mitchell looked out while writing the book.

Guided tours of the Margaret Mitchell House are offered daily and include visits to her Crescent Avenue apartment, which she affectionately nicknamed “The Dump”, and to exhibitions about her life and the movie version of her book.

Traditionally known as one of the most recognized and photographed landmarks in Atlanta, Swan House is an elegant, classically styled mansion built in 1928 for the Edward H. Inman family, heirs to a cotton brokerage fortune. The mansion, designed by famed Atlanta architect Philip Trammell Shutze, provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of this Atlanta family during the 1920s and 1930s.
