Perfect Gift for Atlanta History Fans

Chad Elkins of 4SQATL and NASA digital fame launch his 25th Century Games start up with a bang last week.  His 1,000 piece puzzle based on a balloon-eye view of 1892 Atlanta is available as a Kickstarter campaign through August 15.

Augustus Koch was born in Germany in 1840. He moved to the US before the Civil War where he served in The Corps of Engineers. After the war, he traveled to cities around the country and illustrated Bird’s Eye View maps from hot air balloons. Augustus drew a series of perspective based maps from dozens of locations. In 1892, he tied off his hot air balloon near Grant Park and created this beautifully drawn map of Atlanta and the surrounding area complete with notable locations and street names.

Inman Park and the other historic Atlanta neighborhoods are beautifully detailed on the puzzle.

The campaign met its target twenty four hours after it went live, guaranteeing that your $20 contribution will land a treasure for you or a killer gift.

To get your weekend started I offer Eward's revaluations about the mystery of a particular Foursquare badge.
