Visit the Old Court House to see The Guy Hayes Photo Collection

 While at the Decatur Book Festival why not visit the Guy Hayes photo collection at The Old Court House....and it's FREE
This exhibit showcases a small selection of black and white photographs from the Guy Hayes collection and provides a unique view of food trends, clothing styles and recreational diversions from the 1950s and 60s. Hayes was a professional freelance photographer from 1944 to 1983. He graduated from Clarkston High School and served in the Navy during World War II. After the war he settled in Avondale Estates. Hayes was a regular contributor to The Atlanta Journal, The Atlanta Constitution and The DeKalb News/Sun. More than 11,000 of his original negatives were donated to the History Center in 1984, and although very little documentation accompanies the collection, Hayes’ artistic works reveal a prolific talent with an incisive eye.
