Birmingham, Alabama, in old photos & postcards
Hello friends, Samm Bennett here. Birmingham, Alabama happens to be my hometown, where I was born in the year 1957, and spent my first 20 years. Thanks to ye olde internets, I've been able to compile a collection of historical images from the town of my birth. Many of the places depicted were familiar to me in my youth, and some I've discovered have shown me glimpses, of course, of a Birmingham that I never knew. Of particular interest to me are the old postcards and photos of places that I remember well, and spent some good times in (well, good and bad, naturally), to see them in earlier times. Usually more beautiful times… Hope you enjoy.
