    Is it possible to tell whether these houses were in Atlanta? We know that the general location is Georgia based on the title of the album in which the photo was placed. A few years ago, the Atlanta photographer Thomas Askew was identified as the creator for several pictures in the album. Those are the clues we have so far. -- Helena
