In addition to the postcards I've posted previously, I also purchased this collection of postcards I've acquired featuring Columbus, Georgia that are in mint condition. I do believe they were manufactured around 1910. It's amazing they are in such great condition and even more amazing that they were still in their original Kress packaging! Sadly only the facade of the old Kress building still exists, as the building succumbed to fire in 1994.
The Confederate Monument is still there along with the house featured at the intersection of Third Avenue and 14th Street and the St. Elmo House. However, the St. Elmo house did burn in 2011, but was mostly undamaged. The Courthouse has been torn down and replaced with a 13 floor "skyscraper" built in 1973, much to the dismay of the city folk. And to my knowledge the Green Island Ranch is no longer standing, but a luxurious country club now exists on the site.
