Commercial Block, Gay

Signs on the window of this two-story turn-of-the-century commercial block suggest this was once the home of Sloane’s Haberdashery but Alice Walker notes: I live in Gay and this building has been empty for a long time. It’s now used as a movie location; Sloane’s Haberdashery was a set from the film Lawless. Most recently, it served as Bryant’s Grocery in the movie Till.

    You have started grouping these photos by type, regardless of place. You used to group them by place. I suggest that is a better way to do it. I have no earthly idea where Gay, GA is. Your linking this to other structures in Gay will give me a better picture of what Gay was once as a town. Linking this pix to other structures in other towns does not help me understand Gay at all.

      Rafe, actually, I’m not grouping by type. It may seem that way, but I’m “repairing” a lot of older photos and finding images in my archives I’ve never published. That may be why it seems to be all over the place. I usually post quite a few from one area after a trip, but these may be a bit mixed up for a time. You can always use the list to find places…

      And Gay is in Meriwether County, about 20 miles north of Warm Springs.
