|On this 1919 map, Union Station is out of the scene to the right. Terminal Station is in the center, with its huge arched train shed dominating the area.
Across Mitchell Street from Terminal Station is the Southern Railway office building and that railroad's freight depot. Southern departed the old East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia depot to the south at Peters Street. It became the home of Raley Bros., a local business.
To the right of Terminal Station is the Central of Georgia freight depot. Nearby are the yards and freight depot of the Western & Atlantic Railroad. On the north side of the W&A depot are similar facilities for the Seaboard Air Line Railway and the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway.
In the upper left corner of the map is the freight depot of the Atlanta, Birmingham & Atlantic Railway. As the last railroad to enter the city, it had to settle for a location a couple of blocks west of Atlanta's railroad center.
