William Wilson (died 1905) was a professional documentary photographer in the late 1800s. He was born in London, England, but his family moved to South Carolina when he was two years old. He lived in Savannah, Georgia, for thirteen years of his adult life.
This collection consists of fifty-one prints that originated from Wilson's glass plate negatives from the 1880s. The prints are not originals, but were reproduced for an exhibit using methods similar to the one Wilson used. Most of the images depict scenes and people in Savannah and nearby coastal areas of Georgia.
