Description "7--Aerial View of Main Business Section / Savannah, Georgia"
Verso:
"Historic and Beautiful Savannah, "Birthplace of Georgia," is situated on a deep landlocked 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. In Christ Church, on the side of John Wesley's Chapel, was held the first Protestant Sunday School in America. Wormsloe Gardens, on the south end of the Isle of Hope are the most beautiful in the South."

This colorized postcard, distributed by Dixie News Company of Savannah, depicts an aerial view of the city. The United States Post Office (now courthouse) appears in the bottom left corner of the image while City Hall appears in the top right.
