Color postcard, with no border and divided back, postally unused. The postcard dates from the mid 1950's and contains views of Broughton Street and of the old Talmadge Bridge. Just visible on the right side of Broughton Street is the marquee for the State Theater, which operated in the old Odeon Theater building from 1950-1958. On the left side of Broughton just under the banner, is Levy's Department store. The facade was put on the newly remodeled block long store in 1950. Caption from back of card: "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."
