Wordless Wednesday: Train Depot --Beaufort, Carteret, NC


This is one of several postcards that I have that show some of the places where my ancestors lived. The image is of the train depot in Beaufort, Carteret, NC. The postcard reads on the back: Historic North Carolina Collection, Copyright 1900-1939, Archival Edition 1999.

    1. It's amazing how photos really help us envision how our ancestors once lived. Like you said, it brings things to life.
