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.
