Thomasboro, Georgia

Thomasboro is an historic farming community in Screven County. This was a general store and likely the location of the post office, which was in operation from 1914-1951. Like the nearby settlement of Millerville, it has been lovingly maintained as a tribute to its history and is closely watched over. Having seen so many places like this in ruins over the years, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate families and owners for maintaining these tangible links to the past.

Can’t you just see old men standing around here, drinking Co-Colas and talking about the price of cotton and comparing mules and tractors?!

    That’s exactly the sort of things I envision and imagine when viewing your photography, Brian.

    Wells and water pumps were familiar sights at homes and service stations in Maine when I was a child in 40’s – 5o”s. A priming bucket was provided, along with a community dipper to drink from.

    Are those kind of days gone forever?
