In her book "Let's Bring Back", Lesley M.M. Blume lists these and more in her "Encyclopedia of Forgotten-yet-delightful, Chic, Useful, Curious and Otherwise Commendable Things from Times Gone By". Ms. Blume writes, "We're absolutely drowning in Newest, Fastest, Latest, Disposable...."
Cafe society, opera, avenue promenades, and picnics in graveyards (like world-famous Bonaventure Cemetery, Colonial Cemetery or Laurel Grove). Yes ma'am and yes sir, Savannah has them all!
Add also cobblestone streets, candy stripped barber shop polls, gas light street lights, cable car (on River Street), plus figureheads found on the bow of tall ships docked along the Savannah River harbor.
We continue to search for what Savannah has to fulfill Ms. Blume's longings. Yes, we'll add bonbons, rocking chairs, dining room and bedroom fireplaces, nostalgic music, finger-bowl Champagne glasses, and sleeper trains (Amtrak).
When visiting in Savannah, Georgia, one slows the pace.
Yes, these kind of days-gone-by-indulgences are here and now in charming Savannah, Georgia USA. Consider this idea! "Elevenses"-- a simple late morning sort of snack like tea, just because, or two cups of freshly blended coffee with fresh-from-the-farm cream and sugar made in Savannah from sugar cane!
