I love Southern towns. They have a charm all their own. This photo was taken in downtown Dalton, GA, at 7:49 on July 20th and it appears that nothing much is happening. Just wait until around 8:00. Shop keepers flip the "Closed" signs over and they're open for business. As the sun rises and illuminates the storefronts, you can see history in the brickwork. Except for a few businesses lost in a fire, these same facades were standing in the mid 1940's - and even before. Ya'll stop in to see us sometime.
