Meet the Author

Elaine Blackmon Henson grew up in nearby Wilmington and has loved going to the beach all of her life. A career educator, she and her husband bought a 1940s cottage at Carolina Beach as a summer rental. In searching for vintage pictures to use in the cottage, she began collecting old postcards, and curiosity about the history of the images in those cards led to this book.
