“No city of the Union blends more palpably the old and the new than Savannah. The place at a large extent has kept its early individuality. It has broad shaded streets rolling in primitive sand, and lined with old fashioned residences with a stately flavor of the aristocratic about them, and even the new and more elegant home avoid the gorgeous phylactery of modern fashion. The past is a living presence in this beautiful old city….” The City of Savannah by I.W. Avery, Harper’s magazine (ca. 1888)
