Jack Nelson Ford, Darien

darien-ga-jack-nelson-ford-photograph-copyright-brian-brown-vanishing-coastal-geogia-usa-2016

This has been remodeled and now serves as the Darien firehouse. Its Streamline Moderne architecture suggests it was likely built from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s. The ‘modern” tabby walls have been replaced by stucco. In transferring materials from one website to another, I have lost the comments, but someone noted that the dealership had another owner besides Jack Nelson. I’ll add that information, as well as photo of its present appearance, as soon as possible. (These photographs were made in 2011).

East Beach Christmas Tree, St. Simons Island

I talked to a couple of locals while admiring the latest additions to this driftwood totem, used to post remembrances of lost loved ones and pets earlier this summer, but now put into action as the East Beach “Christmas tree”. How cool is that?!

The first thing that caught my eye was this strip of vinyl siding with the legend “St. Simons 1-Matthew 0” in reference to the lack of damage the island sustained during this year’s hurricane.

Ornaments were actually being placed while I was getting the shots. I imagine the “tree” will be full by Christmas day.

Craftsman Cottage, St. Simons Island

Vernacular frame cottages of this type were once common on St. Simons, but are increasingly rare today. This one on Beachview Drive has definite Craftsman features, and a twin next door.
