This has always been a favorite Tifton building of mine. R. L. Brown writes: This building was known as Tiff’s Garage. See photo in the Arcadia Publishing’s book on Tifton. The overhang has been removed.
I have an antique postcard of this structure and there are significant enough differences in the facade to require further investigation. A narrow green Ludowici Tile awning [for lack of a better word] wrapped around the top of the building and decorative medallions on the windows weren’t originally present. Also, the windows themselves appear wider on the postcard. This has to be one of the finest commercial garages, in an architectural sense, surviving in South Georgia, if its identity can be confirmed.

Thanks so much. I’ll update now. I have an old postcard of TIft’s Garage somewhere and had no idea this was the place. Great to know!
