About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

It had better look good

Estimated value of this address is $790,000. Beautiful property, though, and I'd bet we're not the only ones glad it was spared from the wrecking ball. One other interesting thing about this district is that it indicates that the area is not "hollowed out" in the way that older neighborhoods in Detroit, Gary, and Chicago are. In those cities, you see tons of vacant lots where houses ought to be; it would be interesting to learn that didn't happen in Savannah.

Curb Appeal

All I can say is WOW!

A truly beautiful revival. That Google Street View provides a powerful argument for renovating rather than razing neighborhoods. Thanks for posting.

Still looking good
