- Turn-of-the-twentieth century postcard image of men, women, and children leisurely strolling on Bay Street, along the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia. During the early 1900s, Bay Street gained popularity as a commercial, recreational, and residential area for Augustans. Homes, city wharfs and entertainment hot spots like Bay Street Theatre lined Bay Street. However, recurring flooding in 1888, 1908 and 1912 forced the city to construct a levee between 1813 and 1819 along Bay Street. As a result, many of the homes and businesses that lined Bay Street were destroyed.
Original postcard scanned and described by the Digital Library of Georgia as a part of Georgia HomePLACE: an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service and GALILEO.
