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.”

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

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!
