Description:
Elevated view of the English American Building (also known as the Flatiron Building) and Peachtree Street (left) and Broad Street (right) in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
The English American Building was constructed in 1897, by architect Bradford Gilbert, at the corner of Broad and Peachtree Streets in Atlanta, Georgia. After the popularity of the Flatiron building in New York, which is shaped the same as the English American Building, the Atlanta structure adopted the Flatiron name.
