Savannah, Pt. 7 & Last

The last three pictures are from Savannah’s City Market. It was the hub of business in the city. Everything was bought and sold there. However, like the cotton warehouses, it has now become a tourism mecca, from surrey, wagon, carriage and trolley rides about the historic district, to streetside cafes and restaurants, places where you can buy symbols of the South’s past, like parasols, to galleries for art and custom jewelry.

If you enjoy something a little more romantic than a trolley, try the
horse and carriages.

The streetside cafes.  It was unusually hot for so early in the year, so the
cafes kept fine misters going in front of fans to cool customers.

If you would like to feel like Scarlett O'Hara (remember the good ol' days
when this caption would apply only to the ladies), there is lace and even a fancy
parasol to complete the ensemble.
