An April 1956 brochure compiled by the Summerville Merchants Association and others included the following photograph:

water skiing

The brochure promoted Summerville and the surrounding area as a watersports wonderland.  I don't know about you, but I've never seen anyone waterskiing along the Chattooga River.  From the extra wake in the above photograph on the left, a second boat with a photographer on board must have made a mad dash across the path of the boat in the photo to shoot this picture.

If anyone knows who the daredevils are, please contact me and I'll update the caption.
