Roadside Art, Workmore

This old MG convertible and mannequin have been a roadside curiosity for as long as I can remember. They’re located in front of the old Workmore School. You might not call it art, but in lieu of a better description, that’s what I call it.

This was the commercial center of what was once known as Summit. It merged in 1920 with the adjacent town of Graymont to become Twin City.

Colonial Revival House, Eastman

The loss of this house would be a real shame, but it’s not abandoned, and the owners may list it for sale in the future. It served for many years as a law office and is still in relatively good condition. At least a window has been boarded to keep out the elements and varmints of the two- and four-legged varieties. It’s design is an amalgam of several styles and since, as I often note, I’m not an architectural historian, I’m at a loss to properly classify it.

The vintage Plymouth Fury III parked beside it is a wonder in itself.

Sometimes, an old barn and an old school bus are all  you need for a good photograph. This was taken near Coochee Creek Road and the license plate on the bus was dated 1983.

The house is classic 19th-century and the car is classic 1950s. Great combination.

The front end and engine of this bus were built by Studebaker. Quincy Webb suggests that the body was likely manufactured by Bluebird in Fort Valley.

The grill style dates the bus to around 1947, but it was likely used well into the 1950s by Ben Hill County.
