Postcards are an important element of understanding our past, for they provide future generations a rare glimpse into a world that many times has disappeared under the aegis of expansion and progress. This book, containing over 200 vintage postcards, allows readers to see one of the South's most historic cities as it looked in the earlier part of the twentieth century--a time when the city was experiencing unparalleled growth. Spartanburg, South Carolina contains scenes of early textile mills, postcards from the early military training camp at Camp Wadsworth, and images of the rapid development of downtown, showcasing Morgan Square, Midtown, Magnolia Street, and Church Street.
