The Berckmans • The Berckmans

These Berckmans on their spacious porch look the epitome of prosperous Augusta, Georgia. In fact, the city has a street called Berckmans Road and it’s not impossible that this wealthy family was the origin of that name. The famous golf course, the Augusta National Club, has in its grounds a mansion called Berckmans Place. That may be the very home where this photograph was taken – modern photos of the property show a remarkably similar porch. Photo Credit: Augusta National/Getty Images
