Pictures of the Week

Bellevue Avenue, ca. 1920. (Left to Right - N.B. Rawls, H.S. Fuller, T.H. Smith
and Stephen J. Lord.





Claxton's Hospital on Bellevue Avenue. Opened in the late 1930s by

Dr. E. B. Claxton. The hospital was operated until the early 1980s when

it was purchased by the Laurens County Hospital Authority. The building

was actually the first home of the Dublin Center of Middle Georgia College.
















The New Dublin Hotel, located on South Jefferson



Street just above the railroad tracks, was opened



in the early 1900s and was in business until it was



torn down in the early 1960s. It was Dublin's prime



hotel until the opening of the Fred Roberts Hotel in



1926.





Saxon Street School - Opened in the fall of 1909.





This near replica of Johnson Street School on



on the northeast side of town was replaced in



the early 1950s by some of the present brick



building. The school has served students on



the south side of Dublin for nearly a century.
