Time capsule: Looking back, through the lens of Carl Brown’s camera (The Dispatch)

The Dispatch: Time capsule: Looking back, through the lens of Carl Brown’s camera . “For more than four decades, Carl Eugene Brown (1918-1998) was a recorder of history in Lowndes County and its surrounds. Frame by frame, he photographed community celebrations, grand openings, recitals, animals, businesses, proms, plays and portraits — the milestones and the everyday. A collection of about 20,000 of Brown’s negatives and prints was donated to the Billups-Garth Archives at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library in 2016 by Sam Laffoon, owner of The Grapevine, in memory of his late wife, Kittie C. Laffoon. “
