Road Trip 16: Riddleville Georgia's 1917 Corner Beauty

Riddleville is a crossroads between Bartow and Sandersville where Highway 242 crosses 231.

I think it's "J Y Bryan & Sons 1917." It has one of those dogeared corner entrances I like so much, lot's of fine brick detailing too. The diagonal "honors" and "activates the corner by facing in. You'll find this in our best feeling corners.

Apart from the visual appeal the cut corner is a gift to the street. It lets you see around the corner a bit, makes you feel a bit safer.

We've seen these before.

And were still seeing these. And it's a fine thing.

Kevin Gillespie's restaurant, Gunshow in Glenwood Park has a massive corner column in keeping with its bulky building. It's a good look.
