Mt. Zion Street, Milan

The building in the left foreground is the old Earl Theatre, built in 1952. Milan is located in both Dodge and Telfair counties, but I’ve usually associated it most with Dodge County.

    I remember when that theatre was in operation in the early fifties, they sold theatre tickets. and drivers license. The operator had a license validating machine, I don’t know how he came by it, but lots of teens that couldn’t pass the drivers test went there and bought license. one of my brothers did. We lived in Coffee county.
