Funeral Cortège-Atlanta, Georgia

I was stopped in a funeral processional when I realized the casket was being pulled by a horse drawn carriage. It was beautiful to witness. This is a screenshot from a short video that I took.

Spring Creek Industrial School-Early County, Georgia

Even though the Rosenwald database confirms there were two Spring Creek schools in Early County, the dates listed don’t match with the date of the report. Since the database is incomplete, I am uncertain of where this is located. This is courtesy of a 1918 report on Georgia education.
