Historic Monroeville Post Card Booklet Volume 1
Love History? Love Monroeville? Want to mail someone a piece of history? The Monroeville Main Street Program has created a treasure for all to enjoy. With dedication and tireless efforts from the Main Street program and local community members, there is now a Historic Downtown Monroeville Postcard Booklet available for sale. Local photographer, Aaron White, graciously donated the use of his collection of Max McAliley historic photographs of Monroeville’s downtown area to be shared locally and nationally. Caroline MacCaughelty, of Artsy Lens Photography, donated the present day photographs of each structure or event. If you would like a print of any of the historic photos in the booklet, please contact Aaron White of Excel, AL and for present day photos contact Caroline MacCaughelty of The Artsy Lens Photography, Monroeville, AL.
The Postcard Booklet features photographs of past and present structures, landscapes, people and it is a true reflection of the charm and character which Monroeville exemplifies. A limited amount of booklets have been printed and they are going fast! Local sponsors and volunteers are to thank for their contributions in the publication of this booklet. Sponsors include: Monroeville/Monroe County Chamber of Commerce, Trustmark Bank, and Floors-To-Go.
