The Georgia & Florida Railway began with bright promise, but early in the 20th century, like many other enterprises in the South, it experienced mostly times of struggle. Started in 1906, the G & F was thrown into receivership after World War I, and rebounded in 1926 only to be forced into bankruptcy by the Great Depression. In 1963 the Southern Railway acquired the property. Offering insights on social and economic conditions in the South from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century, Grant's study of this obscure yet noteworthy railroad will appeal to those interested in transportation, business, railroad, and Southern regional history.
