The fish downspout that graces one of the Savannah mansions on Chippewa Square.
It is said that the fish are good luck as they happily spit the rain away from your home while not allowing
evil spirits up into the house through the gutters.

South Georgia was built by the Irish.  They took jobs that slave owners didn’t want their slaves to do.  As a result, there’s a huge Irish heritage and culture in Savannah including the St. Patrick’s Day parade which was established 175 years ago! I enjoyed toasting my Irish roots in some of Savannah’s finest watering holes including my favorite, Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub, where I snapped this pic.
