Southport and Oak Island Vintage Photographs     More Pictures

Below, please find vintage photos of Southport and Oak Island, NC. These photographs were taken by George Dickieson of Greensboro, North Carolina between 1949 and 1971 on many trips to the Southport area. Mr. Dickieson converted these photographs to slide format and preserved the integrity of the images by storing the slides in a metal slide box. Mr. Dickieson also kept meticulous record of the dates and descriptions of the subject matter. This allowed for easy identification and dating of each slide. The Southport Times acquired these slides in July of 2006 and converted the slides to digital format for presentation on our website. The images from the original slides are presented below.
