These 12 Photos of South Carolina In The 1970s Are Mesmerizing

Life in the 70s without cell phones, social media or the Internet meant things took a little longer. For example, now when you go on vacation you probably use an app on your phone to instantly upload photos of your travels.

Let us ask you this: when was the last time you mailed a postcard from your vacation spot? I can say I mailed a postcard from Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina in October of 2015. It was the first time I sent a postcard in years and it felt great. For the two minutes it took to write it and the five minutes I stood in line at the post office in Linville Falls, NC I actually felt like I’d stepped back in time. You should try it.

Here, we’ve compiled some South Carolina images from the 1970s. Hopefully these photos will take you back to a time when life had fewer opportunities for “instant gratification.”

What do the 1970s represent for you? Do you want to share any memories from that era? We’d love to hear them in our comments!
