South Georgians love their seafood and most small towns have at least one fishmonger. It’s a hard business to maintain away from the coast, though.

The granitoid front and arched door likely date this to the first couple of decades of the 20th century.

Ryals Drug Store is an independent pharmacy and gift shop of the kind that could once be found in every small town. It’s a real McRae landmark, and they even have their own Facebook page.

Telfair Utilities, McRae

Ron Monroe, Sr., writes: This store front caught my eye because I first saw it after retiring to my childhood home of Helena, GA. It confused me because the name of my father’s business was Telfair Utilities Service Company in Helena, not McRae. A few months ago one of my borthers gave me the answer. Lewis Joyner had been an employee of my father, and after my father had closed his business in Helena to take a civil service job, Lewis asked my father if he could use the name for a business in McRae.

Judy Harris writes that this was the Pitts Service Station. She notes it was more a garage than a service station at the time, but later just sold gas. She also recalls that Ralph Evans had an upholstery shop in the back of the building.
