The connections between Myrtle Beach and Conway, South Carolina form an intricate tapestry of contrasting threads-from the neon glitz of the beach resort to the more reserved colonial town that spawned it. Conway citizens enjoyed the coastal town as a playground in the 19th century, and many even helped steer its evolution during the 20th century into a premier vacation destination by relocating to Myrtle Beach to shape and share in its future. Through more than 200 postcards, many dating from the early 1900s, readers witness a wide array of architecture, from the Ocean Forest Hotel and the early Myrtle Beach Pavilion to the local landmarks that were destroyed by Hurricane Hazel in October 1954. These images also tell the stories of other Grand Strand beaches, as well as of Conway, a quintessential Southern city with historic properties and live oak canopies.

A hands-in the-air roller coaster ride about a Greek boy growing up overtop a cafe, in between a cabstand and movie theater. Much of action takes place in downtown Myrtle Beach during the 50's, 60's and 70's when it was a one-jukebox resort. Chock full of juicy characters... carnies, gamblers, jitterbugs, immigrant philosophers, busty waitresses and lovable hookers... young Dino fights, dances, gambles and charms his way to manhood learning from the crusty black and white characters of his youth. Poignant and hilarious with a slanguage, in-your-face voice which reads like dance music.

For almost a century, the heart of Myrtle Beach was defined by a place simply called “the Pavilion.” From the original structure built in 1908, the Pavilion was the center of the resort town’s growing tourism industry. It was a destination point for anyone coming to the Grand Strand. Here you could stroll the Boardwalk, play arcade games, make faces in fun mirrors, ride rides, dance the Carolina Shag, or sit on a bench and watch everyone else do all of the above. The Pavilion underwent several incarnations. The first ones were wooden and vulnerable, but the final was concrete and seemingly indestructible, standing for nearly 60 years. Hardly an architectural marvel, what the Pavilion lacked in grandeur, it made up for in pure old-fashioned fun. The beloved structure and its rides fell prey to economics and a wrecking ball in 2006.
