Overview

Carolina Beach, North Carolina (Postcard History Series) by Elaine Blackmon Henson


Carolina Beach, North Carolina, has been a destination for beachgoers, boaters, and fishermen since the 1880s. Visitors came first by the combination of river steamers and a train and later by automobiles to seek respite from the summer's heat and the daily grind. This book shares the history of this seaside community through the postcards its visitors sent home. From the early handcolored cards printed in Germany to the modern chrome cards of today, we see the people and places of Carolina Beach.

About 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.
