Now that we have the Leap Year posts behind us, I want to continue with the Savannah Georgia postcard posts with a couple of significant buildings there. The first of these is the Armory of Savannah Volunteer Guards on a 1908 postmarked post card. I did several posts earlier on Armories but this one is different from those in that it has normal businesses set up in the ground level. On the corner is Solomons & Company Drugs while one of the windows has the name "Greyline" painted on it. The second and third floors look like the usual armory. This is American News Company postcard #C2780 and was printed in Germany.

The second view is the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences which has 5 large statues in front. This is a Curteich post card published in 1924 for Lamas Brothers News Company of Savannah. Both of these postcards can be found in my Georgia listings on my website Moody's Postcards.
