Vanishing Georgia contains nearly 18,000 photographs from the Georgia Archives documenting over 100 years of the state's history. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, family and business life, street scenes and architecture, agriculture, school and civic activities, important individuals and events in Georgia history, and landscapes.

Beginning in the mid-1970s, the Georgia Archives endeavored to preserve Georgia's endangered historical photographs by locating, selecting, and copying historically significant photographs held by individuals and organizations across the state.

The Digital Library of Georgia and the Georgia Archives join together to bring these images to the public online with the support of the Georgia HomePLACE program.
