I decided today to do a short series on postcards of Savannah since Georgia is my current home state and Savannah has many beautiful views. There are lots of postcards on Savannah and many dedicated collectors of those postcards. These two postcards were originally a single bifold postcard produced by the Rotograph Company. You can tell this is a late 1800s Pioneer Era post card by the "Mail Card" designation on the back placing it between 1893 and 1898. The bird's eye view looks down the Savannah River toward the Atlantic with the main part of downtown on the right. This area still looks similar with the park and some of the buildings still in use on the famous Savannah River Walk. The ship in the middle of the river has 3 masts and is split on the two cards.. These cards are available in my Georgia listings on my website at Moody's Postcards.
