After World War II, a fierce but civil rivalry developed between Birmingham and Atlanta as to which would become the unofficial “Capital of the South.”
Founded in 1871, Birmingham was a coal and steel town with much of the ownership of the principal industries being in Pittsburgh and other Northern cities. The city’s symbol was and is a large statue of Vulcan, the Roman god of fire and the forge. In 1950, the city’s population was 326,000.
