Gaston Building

Recently, I came across this photograph of 336 Fairhope Avenue under construction. Marmaduke Dyson was the contractor and the building has become a favorite of mine for its stacks of Clay City Tile. The building was completed in 1924 and was The Fairhope Courier newspaper print shop and office on the first floor and the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation office upstairs. At the building’s half century mark the first became the office and library for the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation.
