Tybee Island has fought hard to survive wars, earthquakes, hurricanes, the Great Depression, and even Prohibition, and while Tybee fights hard, Tybee plays hard. Tybee has a unique story as one of the top tourist destinations of the early 20th century. From the early days, when people could only reach Tybee by train, to the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s, souvenir postcards tell the story of Tybee's unique and diverse history.

Sarah Pierson Jones is the executive director of the Tybee Island Historical Society. She arrived on Tybee in 2006 to begin work, under the directorship of the late Cullen Chambers, as the archivist for the society after receiving her master’s degree in historic preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design. During her work, she and Chambers discovered that the postcards of Tybee Island could tell a story all on their own. This book is the culmination of a 10-year effort to collect and archive the best examples of Tybee Island postcards.
