Before and After

views of Fort Pulaski

When Wendell C. Walker, a visitor from Rockwood, Tennessee, went to Cockspur Is land, Georgia, in 1931, Fort Pulaski, he new recalls, "was half-hidden by a dense growth of subtropical vegetation." He borrowed a rowboat and crossed the Savannah River channel to make the (top) photograph of the terreplein. How the National Park Service and the Civilian Conservation Crops have made the historic fortress accessible to the public is illustrated by the (middle) picture made this month from the same camera position. At the bottom are seen some visitors examining a Confederate-made Brooke rifled cannon rescued recently from a junk dealer and mounted at Fort Pulaski National Monument.
