IMAGES OF OUR PAST - MERCER'S SHOPPING CENTER - RICE AVENUE, DUBLIN, GEORGIA

After moving from their North Jefferson Street store in the early 50s, the Mercer Brothers, Marvin, Gene and David built Dublin's first post war mom and pop grocery store on the corner of U.S Highway 80 West/Rice Ave. and Lancaster Street.  Their store became the neighborhood non-chain grocery in western Dublin for more than two decades.  These photos come courtesy of Tom Sharpe, whose grandmother, Nina Fuller, compiled the Souvenir Program of the dedication of the Herschel Lovett Bridge in 1953 and the 1965 Souvenir Booklet of the Tourist Welcome Center on Highway 441 North, Georgia's first tourist welcome center.
