From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art. A key link in the connection of South Carolina's four principal sections—the Piedmont, the Coastal Plain, the Pee Dee, and Savannah RiverValley—Lexington County has provided an abundance of images that serve as a microcosm of the state's growth and development during the first third of the twentieth century. This fascinating new history of Lexington County showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage postcards available and allows readers a nostalgic view into another way of life: amirror of a bygone day in largely rural but diverse settings, from The Fork in the southwest to the Dutch Fork in the northeast of the county.
