  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  Donna Gasses tells us “This is my daddy, Raymond Gasses Sr. Back in the 80s when he was in his mid 50s training for the ‘Mr. Dixie’ contest. He used to train in the back of his clothing store, Raymond's Department Store, where he had built a gym. Now, if all men looked like that in their 50s ... life would be good!”

  Buddy Upchurch writes “At first I thought it was El Mongol, Lou Ferrigno or Gorgeous George, but it's just Lil Ol’ Raymond Gasses.

  Travis Jackson tells us “This picture was taken prior to him rubbing Crisco all over his body to enhance the pictorial definition.”

  Joe Reid, Ted Gleaton, Steven Ledbetter and Janet Thomas also correctly identified the picture.

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
