Pictures of the Week

WPA Nursery in Dublin in the late 1930s.



An engine of the Wrightsville and Tennille Railroad at

the East Dublin rail yard ca. 1920s.






























Brewton native Theron Sapp (#40) scores

against Georgia Tech to "Break the Drought," an eight game losing streak. Sapp was a star on both offense and defense and led the Bulldogs to a 7 to 0 victory. For his heroic efforts, Sapp was immoralized in Georgia Bulldog history as only one of four Bulldogs players to have his jersey number retired. Sapp was the MVP of the Senior Bowl in 1959 and played for the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles. He finished his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.





























Front porch window of the Captain Hardy B. Smith house, taken in July 2007 by Scott B. Thompson, Sr.










The reflection in the window is the western side of the First Methodist Church.










The window's wavy glass, caused by more than a century of settling of the high viscosity liquid in the glass, causes an eery appearance.
