Now that St. Patrick's Day and Easter have come and gone we can get back to the last Savannah postcard article for now. The first image is a bird's eye view of the Oglethorpe Swimming Pool on Wilmington Island which is a 1930s view published by Lamas Brothers News Company of Savannah and printed by E. C. Kropp Company.

The second postcard is a 1917 bird's eye view of the Ocean Steamship Company's new Savannah terminal. On the far right you can see the railroad tracks, trucks backed up to the loading docks and five railroad tracks with trains going into the right wing of the terminal which is labeled "South Bound". In the center is the passenger terminal and offices with truck docks on each side. On the far left is another railroad terminal similar to the one on the far right with trains. This postcard was published in 1917 by the Southern Postcard Company of Asheville North Carolina and printed by C. T. American Art, Curteich. Both of the vintage postcards are available in the Georgia Listings on my website at Moody's Postcards.
