Keep Out!
















I thought about "Lines" for the title of this photo. I see parallel, horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines. This auto dealership closed a while ago and it's unlikely another will take its place. In the meantime, it's locked up tight!

Used Book Store















Borders lost the battle. But, I'm happy to have 2nd & Charles where I can purchase new, gently-used and well-loved books.

News Building








Designed by Augusta architect Lloyd Preacher, the News Building opened in 1917 as the Herald Building at 725 Broad Street in Downtown Augusta. The building was built by Evan Brothers Construction Company of Birmingham in the Italian Renaissance Revival style. It cost $115,000 to build. While it opened as the home of the Augusta Herald, The Augusta Chronicle started merging operations in 1949.  The building was officially purchased by The Chronicle in 1955. The staff of both the morning and afternoon newspaper shared its facilities until the Herald closed publication in 1993.

Saint Paul's Episcopal Church

Saint Paul's Episcopal Church was established in 1750 by the Church of England at the site of Fort Augusta. The Church, located on the corner of 6th and Reynolds Street, is the oldest church congregation in Augusta. The original building was of Gothic architecture, but burned down during the Revolutionary War. The second church burned down during the Great Augusta Fire of 1916. The current church building of colonial architecture was designed by Henry Wendell and was completed in 1919.

Graniteville Documentary
















Now showing at Augusta's Imperial Theatre, Graniteville: Past, Present, Future, created by Bryton Entertainment reveals the 170-year history of Graniteville, SC and offers a view into the future of the mill town, from its founding by William Gregg to the massive derailment of a train in 2005 that spilled 60 tons of chlorine gas. The film, built from more than 40 interviews and 500 hours of animations and recreations, concludes with visions for the future of the town after the closing of Avondale Mills.

Old Library

The old Augusta Library on Greene Street served the Augusta community for 50 years. Books and library staff were moved to the new location across the street and the 60's vintage furnishings were auctioned. Now the building stands empty in the shadow of the new Augusta-Richmond County Public Library.
