Savannah Past and Present by Bailey Davidson

New Photographic Book by Local Photographer Documents Transformation of Savannah

Savannah, Georgia – November 1, 2011 - Bailey Davidson, owner of Bailey Davidson Photography in Downtown Savannah, Georgia, is proud to announce the release of his second self-published book.

Savannah Past and Present is a rephotographic survey of the city of Savannah and it's surrounding areas. The 160-page hardcover book features a foreword by local author Martha Keber and offers a fascinating visual documentation of the transformation and preservation of this historic city. The collection of 144 images stretches from the River Street waterfront and commercial/residential areas of the Historic District to Tybee Island and Fort Screven. Each page juxtaposes a historic black and white image - from the archives of the Georgia Historical Society, the Savannah Historic Foundation, the Tybee Island Historical Society and others - with a present-day color image taken from the same point of view.

"Although this book is not the first rephotographic survey of Savannah, I feel that is a true representation of the concept." Davidson says. "Standing in the same spot as the previous photographer offers an honest 'compare and contrast' effect. It is my hope that Savannah Past and Present will give people a better understanding of the place we so love."

Savannah Past and Present is the perfect book for locals who call the city home and for visitors who never want to forget this gem of the South. It is available locally at E. Shaver Booksellers (326 Bull Street, Savannah, GA 31401, phone: (912) 234-7257) or directly from the author at

A book signing and Meet & Greet with the author is scheduled for Saturday, November 12th from 3 - 5 pm at E Shaver Booksellers.
