Overview

From “Depot Street, looking North” in Abbeville to a “Street Scene” in Zebulon, this delightful gathering of more than six hundred vintage post-card images presents the panorama of daily life in early-twentieth-century Georgia.

Family outings, veterans’ reunions, harvests, baptisms, and market days are just a few of the occasions depicted here, with many of the cards representing the only surviving visual record of schools, homes, churches, businesses, and public buildings long lost to “progress” or disasters.

Bursting with civic pride, boasting of a newfangled product, or simply conveying “Greetings from. . . ,” these post cards are an unexpected and invaluable resource for historians, collectors, and nostalgia buffs.
