The Waving girl..Savannah Georgia USA

Florence Margaret Martus known as the “Waving girl” would be startled by the size of the ships that frequent the Savannah River today going in and out of the Georgia Port.  Visitors to River Street are greeted by the welcoming wave near the east end of the river walk by a statue dedicated to Florence by the city of Savannah in 1972.

The statue  of represents the light hearted story of a local girl that greeted ships for a period of 44 years, from 1887-1931.  More than one tale may be told but they all represent a period of time when a simpler life certainly had its rewards.
