The Tybee Resort

This is a typical Tybee beach cottage from the year 1910. This is a traditional elevated style built on piers for both air circulation and protection against storm surges. Cottages of this style were typically occupied only during the summer months.
This is a postcard showing the Pavilion at Tybee Beach during the 1940's. Many couples spent the evening at the pavilion dancing to the music of Tommy Dorsey and other popular bands of this time. Toward the back of the Pavilion, there was a large bar, dance floor, and a bowling alley. Rocking chairs surrounded the porch of the pavilion inviting visitors to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze.
