It's an all but forgotten place.




Had I taken this picture in 1936, I probably would have captured locals playing checkers and sipping on sodas.




I can only imagine the stories this place could tell.

Happy Tagging!!!

Wow, the Vanishing Georgia archives could add a neat twist to the game.

I've used it on half dozen tags, thought everyone used that site. Just reading through the archives is amazing.
