Leon’s TV Service, Moultrie

The television and VCR repairman is certainly a vanishing occupation, if it’s not gone already. I made this shot in 2008. A sign just inside the entryway noted that Leon was an authorized Sylvania Tee-Vee repairman.

Georgian Cottage, Colquitt County

I photographed this in 2009, somewhere on the Crosland-Scooterville Road. I’m not sure if it was in Colquitt or Worth County nor if it’s still standing.

General Store, Crosland

This is one of three stores I photographed in Crosland in 2008. Two remain, including this one, but the owners have painted it solid gray, even the awnings. I’m amazed that Crosland was such a busy place at one time.  This photograph dates to 2008.

Calhoun Store, Crosland

Lewis Gean Nipper writes: This was my Great grandfather’s store (John Daniel Calhoun). He was the mayor of Crosland and a merchant. There was a railroad track behind the store. It has been gone for a long time. I have a picture of him standing in the doorway. He died in 1921. He and many of my older family members are buried in the cemetery across the road.
