Atlanta, Georgia - 1965
Aerial shot of Greenbriar, which I'm guessing, was probably taken right around the time it first opened in August of 1965 (or just prior to?), as it certainly looks kind of bare and unfinished to me (not to mention a little messy). Parking lot's pretty empty, too, now that I look at it. Especially for a new mall.
Chick-fil-A restaurant in Greenbriar Mall - 1967
Many folks who frequented this mall in those days, also fondly remember the popular Chick-fil-A restaurant that opened here in 1967. This was not only the very first walk-in Chick-fil-A establishment anywhere (many more would soon follow), but also, one of the very first “front-counter” walk-up type mall restaurants, ushering in the now ubiquitous shopping mall "food court" concept, so common in nearly every mall today. Above is a photo of this very Chick-fil-A in Greenbriar Mall, which is still there today!
