Alonzo G. Veal & Son, Deepstep


This is one of the most famous country stores in Georgia. But as many of my fellow rural photographers will tell you, it’s notoriously difficult to photograph.  The present owner is a daughter of Mr. Veal and has recently renovated the building. I plan to visit again soon and hope to find the right perspective.

    I was in Deepstep about a year ago with a friend of mine,
    James Robertson. His parents ashes are buried in the small
    confederate grave yard there. I did not see any building there,
    did see a old home sitting in someone’s yard. He knew all the
    folks there but I do not remember any of the names he mentioned.

    That’s my Grandfather’s store! We called him PaPa! My Aunt has it now and has done a great job renovating it! I believe he would love it! If you get the chance Mr. Brown, please go see it. It looks great!

    Hi, I am the great-granddaughter of Mr. Veal. The store has been renovated and I would love to see your work in new photos. Please let me know if you have a chance to take updated ones. Your 2013 ones are beautiful. Anna
