Living in Savannah, Volume 1 --- Web Page Thirty


The Living in Savannah scrapbooks consist of photographs taken byArmstrong Junior College students for a Contemporary Georgia course in 1939-40 and 1940-41. Both albums are part of the Florence Powell Minis collection housed at the Lane Library. This volume contains 300 photographs and focuses on housing conditions in Savannah, particularly on those of the lower class people--Black and white. We include the original captions given by the student authors without comment. The photos and captions speak for themselves about the attitudes of the student authors and the conditions found in Savannah while America was still at peace and war raged throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. The text page includes the title page and preface. Student photographers are credited on the appropriate pages.
