A GREATER SAVANNAH (1903-1906), AN ERA OF NOTEWORTHY CIVIC INNOVATION THROUGH POSTCARDS
Nick was excited to share with us his collection of postcards, specifically with Savannah's history and infrastructure that exists today and those that are sorely missed.  What about postcards?  They convey place, emotion, and time. They relay tragedy, disaster, feelings, celebrations, and more.  World War I ended postcards as print quality declined and ink was running out. After showing us his collection and a history through time, Nick posed the question - What are the buildings today that will be cherished in the future?"
