In today's fast paced world we often forget the "good old days" at the turn of the last century. Postcards will quickly reconnect you with the way it was and our first post card shows the Union Railroad Station in Augusta Georgia. This is a circa 1908 Illustrated Post Card Company product showing the rather large depot which reminds us that the railroad was the primary mode of people and goods within the country because it was fast, efficient, widely available and much faster and more comfortable than a horse and buggy or stage coach.

The second Augusta Georgia post card is a circa 1906 Raphael Tuck & Sons card and shows a "sand bar ferry" across the Savannah River which could carry several buggies or wagons as well as horse back riders. You can see a railroad bridge in the background but the ferry was the way for everyday traffic to cross the river. Both railroad depots and ferries are very popular subjects in the postcard world. Both of these vintage post cards are available in my Georgia listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! Your ticket to the "good old days".
