One thought on “Strand Ballroom”

  1. Great site. Looking for info on Reese Dupree for a book about the History of Music in Macon, GA, where he was from. That photo you posted looks like a newspaper clipping. Do you know what paper? I have a lot of clippings on Dupree but none so far have that particular photo. Thanks for reading this unsolicited inquiry.
