The coastal area photos thread seems to be mainly beach photos, but not too many geographically-interior shots. I thought there should be a thread here specifically for pics of Greenville and its surrounding areas. Photos can be your own or historical photographs such as the ones found here:

Thanks. I was going to link my pics to the coastal pics thread, but they didn't seem to match the theme going on there. I'm looking forward to see everybody's photos. I especially love comparing modern photos to old ones, to see the differences, good and bad. B&N has local picture books for sale, love going in there and looking at those. When I was walking around downtown I saw that Uptown Greenville headquarters on Evans is selling a photo book of historical buildings of Greenville. I keep meaning to go check that out. Has anyone seen it, or know its price?

I'm not sure if it's the same exact book your talking about but there's a book in Barnes and Nobles that has a sepia cover and features all old pictures of Greenville. I'm not sure of the price but I do believe it's the book your talking about.

I just did a little research and found the book I was talking about. Here is it:
http://www.amazon.com/Greenville-Ima.../dp/0738513644
Is this the same book you saw? If so its at Barnes & Nobles.

I've looked that book a few times, but that's not the one I'm talking about. I think the one at Uptown Greenville is published on their behalf, in accordance to their mission. They were closed when I walking by. IIRC it was more about building structures then and now. It is a hardback with a white paper cover. I doubt Amazon or anybody but Uptown Greenville sells it.

Oh ok, it sounds like a interesting book. I guess you'll just have to visit them when they're open and ask if they sell the book or not.

Did you happen to notice the price? They don't have it on their website or FB page.

It was a while ago, during like Pirate Fest or something. I do remember thinking it was expensive, for what it was. I usually would buy something like that, but couldn't justify it at the time.
