Miscellaneous -- Schedules to and from Tybee where the ocean breezes blow.
Central of Georgia Railway
Central of Georgia Railway.
Tybee Island (Ga.)
Black and white postcard with image on back, also and no border, postmarked, 1912. The post card bears no publishing information, but was generated by the Central of Georgia Railway and contained schedules of train travel between Savannah and Tybee Island for day travel to and from the beaches. The information on the front indicates that there were intermediate stops as well. The complete trip took 45 minutes.
In July of 1890, the Central of Georgia Railway acquired all of the stock of the Savannah and Atlantic Railroad, an 18-mile excursion railroad between Savannah and Tybee Island. Service for day trips between Savannah and Tybee Beach were offered shortly after that. The Tybee division was abandoned in 1933.
