I’ve a “pie safe” like the one in the picture that came from my great grandparents (Big Coon, AL, Jackson County) to my mother, to me.
These photographs are from the Historic American Building Survey, a government program to put out-of-work photographers, architects and historians to work during the Great Depression. Without this archive, we would likely have no idea about many places. Alabama has a particularly fine collection thanks to the work of Dr. Walter Burkhart of Auburn.

Alana Michele, nice history of Selwood.
We have a pie safe in our home almost identical. Ours came from Charleston.
