Abandoned Volkswagen, Mystic

Mystic GA Irwin County Abandoned Volkswagen Beatle Bug Country Store Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

I’ve photographed this old country store and the Volkswagens often parked nearby since the earliest days of Vanishing South Georgia. This photograph is from my archives, dating to circa 2010.

    Mystic my second home all family. Photo of one of the three Towson stores owned by my grandfather George T Towson. That building was the merchandise store, Post Office and phone operator. Ran by my cousin Willie Belle Morgan Pierce. The railroad depot was to the right, along with the drug store, and my grandfather’s office. To the left was another store for all small goods meat and fish were fresh cut in the back. It also had two gas pumps out front with a smoke house and an Ice house. Attached included a barber shop. After the passing of my grandfather in 1930, Some of his businesses closed others were run by his brother and children. My grandmother was left with ten children to care for. Many of the building were still in use till the mid 1980’s. Great and fond memories.
