Book Description: Before Fulton County, there was DeKalb County; before Atlanta, there was Decatur. It is a community rich in history and the "mother county" of the city of Atlanta. A tiny town called Terminus was established in 1846 and from this early settlement in DeKalb County, the South's most thriving city, its cosmopolitan center, was born. DeKalb County in Vintage Postcards depicts the tranquil days before the boom of Atlanta, revealing a landscape unfamiliar to present-day residents of the area. Postcard scenes of the famed Stone Mountain, Camp Gordon, and the historic neighborhood of Druid Hills are featured within these pages, along with a variety of churches and educational institutions.

Glimpse the long-lost natural beauty of Magnolia Lake and the primeval forests that gave Wildwood its name. See commercial fishermen leaving from the beaches of Holly Beach or the docks of Anglesea to practice their livelihood as recreational fishermen head out to sea on crowded party boats for a day of angling. Witness Fourth of July celebrations, baby parades, and automobile and yacht races.

Book Description: Founded in 1828 as a planned city by the Georgia Legislature, Columbus prospered due to its location on the Chattahoochee River. Industry sprang up along the shores of the Chattahoochee and shaped Columbus's identity as one of Georgia's premier cities. Today a thriving metropolis, it is the Columbus of yesteryear that is illuminated within these pages. Early postcard views reflect the city from around 1905 to 1942, showcasing many of its businesses, neighborhoods, and parks. Included are places virtually unknown to citizens today--the Bell Tower, the City Market, North Highlands Park, and Wildwood Park--as well as those that were landmarks a century ago and landmarks still: the Iron Bank, the Springer Opera House, the Union Depot, the YMCA, and Fort Benning.

Book Description: From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art.

This fascinating new history of West Central Georgia showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage postcards available.

Book Description: Located in the rolling hills of North Carolina's Piedmont, between the Yadkin and the Catawba Rivers, Cabarrus County was once a haven of lush vegetation and wild animals. Early immigrants-mostly of German and Scotch-Irish descent-arrived with a strong pioneering spirit to carve out of this wilderness a place to call home. The rich and fertile soil was ideal for agriculture, while the shiny yellow rocks proved to be "worth their weight" when correctly identified as nuggets of gold. Today, Cabarrus County and its county seat, Concord, are considered home to more than 100,000 residents.

Book Description: In 1800, James Simpson, a Botetourt County landowner, purchased 31 acres of land for $100 and dedicated half of the purchase to plotting a new town. The Town of Salem was officially established when Simpson recorded his ownership at Fincastle Courthouse in October 1802, and it later became the government seat when Roanoke County was carved from Botetourt County in 1838. Today, Salem is an independent city, boasting a rich tradition of educational, commercial, and residential success. Roanoke County, like Salem, has emerged from its agrarian past to become a suburban county that embraces the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as the strength and success of corporate centers and residential communities.

Book Description: Featuring eighty-two vintage postcards published beginning at the turn of the century, Postcards of the Night traces American cultural life as it was transformed by industrial strength and shifting demographics. The nation increasingly was growing more educated, upwardly mobile, and urban, and the nighttime postcard popularized this modernism for ordinary consumption. Coalitions of city planners and urban developers, politicians and the media utilized the picture postcard to strategize the role of the individual in the rise of the city. It was the birth of leisure and of travel, the new tourist city to which the postcard needed forcefully to speak, in ways that were equal part artifice and art.
