IMAGES OF OUR PAST - THE LOST STREET OF DOWNTOWN DUBLIN,GEORGIA

It was first known as North Jackson Street and later East Jackson Street.   Seven decades ago, this well traveled street was lined with older, handsome buildings.  Today, thanks to what some people call progress and because of some people's unwillingness to walk a slightly longer distance to work, the buildings in this photograph, including Coleman's Hospital at the far rend, are now sadly gone.  

The photo dates back to the mid to late 1940s.  All you car lovers help date it by the now classic cars parked along the street.  From Left to Right Laurens Hardware (E.S. Street Bldg.,) Peacock Chevrolet, Dublin City Hall, Georgia Power Company, unknown, Brown Furniture Company, unknown, Coleman Hospital.
