nerdalicious1-deactivated201212 said: Hi, do you have any photos of the Sans Souci area, the old house on Clarendon, something like this. I could use it for a class project, finishing up a community analysis.

Hi!

We have several postcards of the Sans Souci Country Club, dating from ca. 1905-1920.  We also have a general postcard of the Sans Souci area, with the caption “Home of the Country Club.”

I hope this helps!  Email us at specialcollections@furman.edu if you have any further questions or need anything else at all.

Thanks for your interest!
