Postcard Thursday

From 1972, ten years before I was born. “Mama” would be my great grandma, who I have never met.

Greetings from Savannah, Georgia!

The Eugene Talmadge Bridge
The Eugene Talmadge Memorial Bridge is dedicated as a memorial to the late former Governor of Georgia, was built at a cost of $14,600,000. The structure is 6,034 ft. long with a vertical clearance of 135 feet over the Savannah River.

Forsyth Park is one of the numerous beautiful parks that dot “The Hostess City of the South”. Every Spring, when the thousands of azalea bushes in this park along with other flowering shrubs and trees are in bloom it presents a gorgeous riot of color.

The beautiful fountain was modeled after that in the Place De La Concorde, Paris, France.

Hello Margie
Having a good time but will be coming home soon. hope you are o.k.
Love, Mama

  • Cool! I lived in Savannah for 14 months a few years ago 😀 The view is taken from their downtown area alongside the river. You would love that place! It had cute shops, yummy places to eat and awesome buildings to photograph. Unfortuantly I dont have many photos that I took there because it was before I was too into photography but mostly because it was always hard to find a spot to park and it was SOOOO humid there lol and I’m a wimp when it comes to humidity and heat lol

  • Love the Southern belles!
