Like many small Georgia towns, Donalsonville still has a lot of commercial storefronts remaining from a time when rural communities were busy centers of trade and commerce.
2nd Street was the busiest part of town and still has a large number of storefronts, though many are now empty.
This was the City Motor Company’s Marine Division. Boating and fishing are still quite important to the local economy, thanks to the proximity of Lake Seminole.
These examples on East 2nd Street are particularly nice.

Pearlie’s clothing store occupies the Dot and Nez building and City Marine is still a very active business.
Dot and Nez, a woman’s store, was the mecca of style and grace in the 1970s….so sad that it is gone.
Got that old style look ,nice .
