Montgomery, Alabama, is the birthplace of the Confederacy and the site of many protests during the Civil Rights Movement. A constant battleground of morals and politics, the city has been in a downward spiral for decades. Its buildings are a reminder of its storied, and in many ways, controversial past. David Bulit, a long-time photographer and historian, guides readers through the city’s lesser known history. This Abandoned Montgomery Book features the house on Goldthwaite, a mansion built for a U.S. marshal, located in what was once a wealthy and thriving neighborhood; the Grove Court Apartments, a complex built to fill the influx of people in the city following World War II; the Sayre Street School, a once historic school turned funeral home; Capitol City Dry Cleaners, part of a superfund site which contaminated part of the city’s groundwater; the town of Spectre, a movie set used for the movie Big Fish; and much more.
