Adds Rare Postcard To Collection
July 15, 2012 - Southport, NC - The Southport Times is
pleased to announce the addition of a rare harbor view
postcard to their extensive collection of
Southport area postcards.
This new card is a real photograph postcard depicting
the "The Fourteen" off the point of Fort Caswell, at the
mouth of the Cape Fear River. The City of Southport can
be seen in the background. The card is undated and not
postally used, but likely dates from the 1910s.

As previously announced in April, The Southport Times'
postcard collection will be published in print format in
a book entitled "Postcard History Series: Southport, Oak
Island and Bald Head Island" by Arcadia Press in South
Carolina. The book will be written by Kris Friend,
current blog writer for The Southport Times, and will be
available in the spring of 2013.
