  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  A special thanks to Wade Bledsoe who brought in this picture of the Ford Dealer, Collins Motors on Atlanta Street. Wade thinks this is from the year 1958. The pick-up at the left is a 1940 Ford that belonged to Wade's father-in-law.

  Bob Gilbert guessed correctly and says “this photo was probably taken in the late ‘50’s from across the street approximately where Rucker Real Estate is now located.” Bob still owns a 1966 Ford pickup that was purchased (new) at Collins!

  Charles Joyner also guessed correctly saying that “the dealership was owned by the Collins family that lived on College Street in McDonough.” 

  Ted Gleaton says “my dad, J.B. Gleaton, worked for the Collins Dealership for 44 years.”

  Joe Turner wrote in to tell us that “there appears to be a new Edsel in the middle of the picture and they were made in 1958, 59, and 60.”

  Thanks also to Calvin Ford, Debbie Moore, Sydney Brannan and Garry Collins for writing in.
