Coody Dairy, 1950, Dooly County

This utilitarian block structure is typical of mid-20th-century commercial dairies. Coody’s, like numerous other local dairies, was the main supplier of milk to much of Dooly County in its day.

Logging Tram, Long County

I photographed this logging tram in 2011 near the Long/McIntosh County line and am not sure if it is still intact. Floods over the past decade have been common in the area. I’m not precisely sure how they utilized it , but there were numerous versions of these in the Southern swamps at the turn of the last century, when the timber industry was dominant and most of the old growth forests were being decimated. This one may date to the 1920s or 1930s, but could be earlier. Discussions with a friend with knowledge of the area suggest there are several other surviving remnants of old logging roads/railroads in the area and I plan to try to document some of them in the future.

Robinson’s Grocery, Irwin County

I’ve been photographing this structure for nearly 20 years and after all that time now have an identification, thanks to Wilbur Adkison. He notes that it was Robinson’s Grocery and was operated by Mrs. Robinson, who was a teacher at nearby Ashton School (Ben Hill County). Like the store in the previous post, Robinson’s Grocery is an amazing survivor.

Zion Rest Primitive Baptist Church, Circa 1910, Fitzgerald

This is thought to be the oldest surviving wood frame church building in the city of Fitzgerald. After many years of neglect, it is very endangered.
