About the Collection
The Russell J. Arnsberger Postcard Collection is comprised of over 350 postcards of houses, businesses, public buildings, street views, military base activities and structures in and around Beaufort, South Carolina. Some built structures pictured are no longer extant or have been greatly altered. Arnsberger collected postcards about Beaufort County beginning with some by Charles G. Luther and the Crescent Drug Company of the 1900-1910s through some produced by Photo Arts of Winnsboro, SC into the 1970s and 1980s. He donated two albums of his personal collection of postcards to the Beaufort District Collection in 2008.
This discrete collection represents only a small portion of the postcards held in the Beaufort District Collection. Please contact Beaufort County Library for further information about the postcards that are not posted online.
