Description:
Mr. Pruitt has lived in Savannah since 1926. He remembers during his childhood visiting the Tin City section of town. "There were literally hundreds of homes where the Negro population lived. They built these homes out of tin and cardboard and wood or whatever. Some of them were no more than four by four. These were stuck back in among the mangrove and elderberry swamps along the Savannah River."
