These are just a few of Bill Ricks’s images of life in and around Soperton, Georgia, over the past few decades. Mr. Ricks was an army veteran and a photographer who documented just about everything of note in his home county. And in the tradition of small town photographers, he enjoyed sharing his work. Many of his images were displayed in the windows of the old Moring’s Cash Store, but I’m told they are gone now. Luckily, the images are archived online. I believe Mr. Ricks passed away in 2011; I regret that I never got to meet him. I hope his images are kept in good shape for future generations. Perhaps his family will do a book of them at some time.
