Piedmont Park, circa 1920. The stone planters and balustrades were built to flank the steps leading to the major exhibit building for the Cotton States And International Exposition. The stone steps seen in the photos here replaced the wooden steps that were originally built. The exposition was considered a world's fair, and lasted 100 days, attracting an estimated 800,000 visitors during its run.
Thanks to John Steinheimer for the vintage image.
