The city of Savannah, Georgia was founded in 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe. In 1810, it was governed by a City Council and Mayor William B. Bulloch.
This city ordinance, dated July 9, 1810, is a measure to prevent indecent exposure among local chimney sweepers. It also outlaws swimming or bathing "in front of the town" in the river during certain hours. A typed transcription is included with the original document.
