Previously I blogged about the historic Georgia Theater, almost destroyed by fire a year ago. The Athens Banner-Herald now has a slide show showing reconstruction in the interior. It's a pretty interesting pictorial history of the restoration of the building, which dates to the late 1800s. The owner has struggled with financing and rebuilding, but there's so much sentiment to save the building that I think he'll ultimately be successful. He's also got a great sense of humor - the marquee on the building currently reads "Men At Work."
