Books Info:

The City of Savannah, Georgia free pdf Excerpt from The City of Savannah, Georgia: Its Advantages, Resources, and Business Facilities, Savannah, March 1895 Savannah has a population of about 55,000. It covers an area of 4,000 acres, and has a property valuation of $40,000,000, and a commerce of $120,000,000. The city has 110 miles of streets, 65 acres of public parks, 30 miles of street railway, and 5 miles of wharves. Geographically it is at the head of ship navigation on the Savannah river, 18 miles from the ocean, on a plateau 50 feet above the level of the sea. It is in 32 degrees and some minutes North latitude and is near the isothermal line of 70 degrees temperature which marks the northern limit of the tropics. The average temperature is 66 degrees, approximating that of Bermuda, Gibraltar, Spain- Palermo, Sicily- Shanghai, China, and Sydney, Australia. It has held a prominent place among the seaport cities of America on account of its commercial importance, because of its being the chief naval stores port of the world, and the third largest cotton port of America. It is the headquarters of five lines of ocean steamships, four lines of river steamers, and of the two great railway systems of the South - the Central and Plant systems - and is on two trunk lines North and South. It is delightfully situated as a residence town. No other American city has such wealth of foliage, such charming seclusion and such sylvan perfection, so united with all the convenience and compactness of a great commercial city. Its parks and squares are adorned with statues, fountains and mounds, gigantic oaks and magnolias, with here and there catalpas and banana trees. Among the flowers the most beautiful are the rose and the camelia japonica, which bloom luxuriantly in midwinter in the open air. But its natural beauty is not all that Savannah boasts. Its architecture is varied and striking- much of it in the quaint fashion of bygone days, but with those characteristics that the art of the present day is eager to counterfeit. It is rich in historic memories- its schools are unsurpassed- its society is cultured- art is patronized, and all the influences exist which make a city attractive. All classes of society are found as in other States, and the question of nativity, antecedents and political or religious views create as few distinctions as can probably be found in any community in the world. The stranger is welcomed and the new-comer finds friendly neighbors around him. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
