Does anyone here have old pictures of Hilton Head or know of a resource that has historical photos of the island?

I don't know if my photo on the beach from 1992 counts, but it is pretty old.

Seriously, I have googled this before and never came up with very much. I did however, come across a fantastic chronology of Hilton Head from prehistoric times until present day. There is a lot of important dates and names associated with Hilton Head. It is lean on details, but the timetable is well done. I've referred to it multiple times when looking up HHI history. For intstance; Did you know that Hilton Head didn't even get electrical service until the 1950's? Pretty hard to believe, right?

Here's the link (below) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I have looked into this in the past also, without much luck. I have found that postcards can provide some historic significance. What I do from time to time is search for HHI on eBay. Postcards usually show up and some can be quite old. I've bought a few that are nostalgic to me. Good hunting!
