This was among the first houses I photographed in Irwin County, nearly eight years ago when Vanishing South Georgia was just a concept. Thanks to Jason Thomas for the identification. He notes that Percy Thomas lived here until his death in the early 1970s. It’s been abandoned since then.

    Wouldnit be possible for me to get a black and white copy of this to have framed? I can remember as a child stringing up tobacco in this house which belonged to my family. Thank you!

    This particular house was owned by Percy Thomas. He lived there until his death in the early 1970’s.
