wow I see alot of posts I could respond to but there are so many.
I made this slideshow of myrtle Beach history from a rather large postcard and image collection. I have tried to keep them in order the best I could with info on hand and memory. :notworthy:
Alot of the places people have mentioned are in this slideshow. I have another dedicated to the Pavilion itself.
I hope you all enjoy it its titled Myrtle Beach history 1905-2005. You can go to youtube.com and search for cathooker2 if you don't want to use the link. :lol:

Great job! So very nostalgic. I had no idea of what "used to be." Very interesting. Thanks for sharing it.

I have over 1200 postcard images of the grand strand on file. If anyone of you have a motel or old attraction you want to see just ask.
I may have a photo of it.
This is one of my favorites as a child The Bumper Cars.

Thats really a great slideshow!

There's a couple of minor things with it-- you have one picture of a girl standing on the beach, and another with her sitting with a guy by a hot-dog stand. I have that original picture, and its not Myrtle Beach SC- its actually from the "Myrtle Beach" section of Milford, Connecticut. I think its from the 1910s-1920s.

I'm still not sure when Jungle Land was in operation, but I think it was probably in the 1930s-1940s or so.

On the back of the picture, it does say "Myrtle Beach, CT". Its a great period picture, though.

The reason that I think that Jungle Land was back in the much earlier past, is that I can't find anything at all about it in any of my materials dating back to the 1950s and 1960s, plus the only postcards for it are all linen type, which dates it to that period. Susan McMillan thinks that it was somewhere in the Restaurant Row area.

I can't help but wonder how many great pictures are sitting out there in people's old photo albums, that will never see the light of day again. I wonder what will happen to current attractions, now that postcards have been almost totally replaced by email? I'm glad that technology wasn't around back then, or we would have almost no record of so much!

I was thinking jungle land (mid 40s)was near 10th or 12th ave south and kings near the old gate gas station that lot has palm trees on it from another business. the card says in the heart of MB.

I agree about all the pictures that are out there from years of vacations the Sun News was asking for people to send them in. I wonder how many old ones they recieved . I am finishing up a slideshow of Mom and Pop Inns and Hotels along the Grand Strand. I will post a link after I load it on youtube.

I looked at some of your videos and I have to say you do an outstanding job. I can tell you put in a lot of time on these. Thanks for sharing.
