JULY 26, 2016: Edisto River Swimming Area, early 1950s

Before the advent of air conditioning, local citizens would go swimming in the Edisto River to try and cool off in the hot summers, as well as have some recreation and fun. The large trees present provided a lot of shade for the shoreline also. Above is a picture of the swimming area in the early 1950s.
