Description "8--Looking South on Bull Street / Savannah, Georgia"
Verso:
"Historic and beautiful Savannah, "Birthplace of Georgia," is situated on a deep land-locked harbor at the head of ocean navigation on the Savannah River. More cotton is shipped from here than from any other Atlantic port, and it is the leading export city of the world for naval stores. Johnson Square, park shown in the foreground, was named for Governor Johnson of South Carolina. General Nathanael Greene, the Revolutionary War hero, and his son lie buried under the imposing monument erected in his honor."

This colorized postcard depicts a view of Savannah looking south on Bull Street beginning at Johnson Square.
