Jeff Eley leads tour of downtown Savannah for local group

November 9, 2009

Architectural History professor Jeff Eley gave a tour of downtown Savannah for the Skidaway Community Institute on October 31.  The focus of the walk was to bevbuldiscuss the optimism in Savannah around 1900 by highlighting architects and their works of the last decade or so of the nineteenth century up to the First World War.  They looked at a number of buildings that still stand on or near Johnson and Wright Squares, as well as learning about a number of buildings that have been demolished as depicted in historic images (such as the skyscrapers seen to the right in this historic postcard).
