Photos of the Week


Friday, April 22, 2011


Here are a few historical downtown photos from the 1950s and early 1960s.  The first is a picture of Myrtle Beach's City Hall before the live oak trees had been planted and before wings had been added to the building. The second is a 1953 aerial photo of the oceanfront and the Myrtle Beach Pavilion.  City Hall is visible in the top right corner.  Pictured in the third photo are Miss Universe contestants who visited the Sun Fun Festival during the early 1960s.  The fourth photo shows a "human chess game" played during an early Sun Fun Festival.  And the final photo, taken in 1961, shows the Fire Department's ambulance.
