Columbus, Georgia, circa 1955. "Helen Smothers" is all it says here. The World of Helen is tidy, organized and monogrammed

From Columbus, Georgia, comes this circa 1953 image of what seems to be a Christmas party at a laundry. Be of good CHEER, and a happy yule TIDE to ALL!

Continuing our circa 1958 visit to Columbus, Georgia: "Entertainment Committee" is all it says here. See y'all at the mixer!

Columbus, Georgia, circa 1958. "Highway detour." Note the Greyhound bus terminal that looks like someone's screened porch. Also: a big microwave relay tower.

Columbus, Georgia, circa 1956. "Kitchen in model house." A symphony in stainless steel, Formica, linoleum and brick.

Columbus, Georgia, circa 1953. "The Witt Store." Your headquarters for notions, sundries, gewgaws and baubles.

Circa 1955 in Columbus, Georgia. "Switchboard" is all it says here. Smile so they can hear it!

Phenix City, Alabama, circa 1954. "Russell County building and pinball machines." Evidently the aftermath of a vice cleanup in a town known for its corruption.

Louisville, Kentucky, 1969. O.J. Stivers Elementary on Westport Road, AKA "The Cardboard Penitentiary." I've got those great plaid pants on, front row, to the right of the school sign. I'm not pleased to be there.

Columbus, Georgia, circa 1956. "Boys Club picnic." RC Cola outlier on the left, and he's armed.

Jacksonville circa 1910. "Bisbee Building on Bankers' Row." The city's first sky­scraper, still standing on Forsyth Street.

Columbus, Georgia, circa 1962. "Youth Club boys." This has all the earmarks of a church project.
