Title

Old deserted shack, tenant house, in grain field. Greene County, Georgia

Creator

Wolcott, Marion Post

Date

1939 - 05

Description

Even though this house is from a different time period than the house in The Color Purple, the style and area reflect how Mister's house must have looked like. It's not fancy at all, but not to run down either. This house is an hour outside of Macon, Georgia, so it's in the same general location as the house in the book.

There's plenty of room around the house for where Harpo and Sofia eventually lived when they left the house.
