Mrs. Fennell describes her memories of early Savannah as being that of a pleasant town. "I remember ladies in long dresses, large picture hats and gloves and men with derbies and canes promenading down Bull Street and through Forsyth Park. Womankind maintained a proper decorum in those days and held fast to their femininity."
