New Towns uploaded in December

During the month of December, we added just one new town to our North Carolina Postcards digital collection:


Skyland, Buncombe County

The real photo postcard above shows a hotel located at mountain spring in Buncombe County, was was photographed by Herbert W. Pelton ca. 1903.  Pelton later collaborated with NC Photographer George Masa in the 1920s at the Photo-Craft Shop.

Despite December’s lack of novel towns, after scanning through our monthly updates of newly added towns, I can estimate that in 2009 we added over 60 previously unrepresented towns.  Hooray!  I’m curious to see what 2010 will bring.
