BLACKSHEAR'S FERRY

Photographs of Blackshear's Ferry, Laurens County, Georgia, just more than 4 miles north of Dublin.  The first, second, and fourth photographs are from the late 1930s or early 1940s and show long time ferryman Rawls Watson.  The third photographs depicts a photographer's wagon crossing the Oconee River about 1890.

Thank you for posting. We are heading south on 441 on our way to visit family in Florida and noticed Blackshear Ferry Rd. I googled Blackshear Ferry to learn more and found your post and photographs.
