Southport Harbor in 1949

(click on image to enlarge)
Postcard of Southport Harbor in 1949.
According to Arthur Jennings, "the power boat in the foreground I believe was a "Matthews" which were popular. Notice the Junior Club building had not been renovated with a porch. The porch was added and the building renovated in the mid-1950's with a substantial donation from Briggs Cunningham. The last onion house, also in the foreground, was largely untouched from the onion days." Thanks to Arthur Jennings for contributing this rare postcard and background information.
