Central Georgia filming for the Harrison Ford film "42" is now under way. The movie, starring Ford, Christopher Meloni, Chadwick Boseman and others, tells the story of how Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier in 1947. Some of the Macon sites, including Luther Williams, are standing in for Daytona Beach, Florida, where the Dodgers trained.

They filmed some at a house downtown.

Crews set up at a site in Jones County. Film crews covered part of the street so it looked like a dirt road.

Macon's historic Luther Williams Field was ready for shooting and dozens of 1940s-vintage vehicles stood ready. They included one bus marked "Brooklyn Dodgers Baseball Club" and others marked "Daytona City Transport." I loved being able to see all these in one place!

  2. Fun seeing all the vintage cars. Use to think I wanted one at one time, but changed my mind when decided I probably could not see over the front of most of them and the gas cost....well never mind.:-D
    I have a picture of one in my post this week.
    Thanks for hosting again this week - You are appreciated.
    Enjoy your evening.

    I do miss joining in your Outdoor Wednesday meme but since I don't have the time to visit all the other great entries any more it just isn't right for me to stick my own up there.
