About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

When I was a child

In the 1950s there was an annual church service here and we went. Church followed by Dinner on the Grounds. My first experience of deviled eggs, yum!

Sheldon Panos

Sheldon isn't too far from Beaufort where my brother lives. I took some panoramic photos there a few years back, which are attached here. It is truly an enchanted setting, complete with ancient live oaks and Spanish moss.

Romantic Revival

Byron, Shelley or Keats would have found inspiration in such glorious ruins!
