Exciting find at New Hanover County Public Library

Carolina Beach postcard

Travis Souther recently came across this postcard in the Allegood Photograph Collection at the New Hanover County Public Library. The North Carolina Room actually holds both the postcard and the original photograph from which the postcard was created. The photo of Carolina Beach that follows was taken around 1950 by Wilmington-born and famous North Carolina photographer Hugh Morton (1921-2006).

If you're interesting in investigating Hugh Morton further, Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill also has a collection of his photographs and films.
