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.

A sawmill town that has become the crossroads of South Georgia, Tifton was founded by Henry Harding Tift, a "Connecticut Yankee," in 1872. He built a sawmill in what was first known as "Slab Town," but the name eventually changed when sawmill worker George Badger, resolving to be the first to honor village's founder, climbed a pine tree and nailed a placard with TIFTON on it, a condensed version of "Tift's Town." Today, this thriving community is a meeting place for Interstate 75/U.S. 41, U.S. 319, and U.S. 82, and boasts a long and proud history. Tifton, Georgia in Vintage Postcards reveals the early beginnings of the town and its story to the present day, with picturesque street scenes; local schools, including Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College; Georgia Coastal Plains Experiment Station; people and sports; and industry and agriculture. Also highlighted in this engaging volume is the nearby community of Ty Ty.
