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.

The Same Tree ?!

Look at the tree in the right foreground of the original photo and then look at the tree in the right foreground of the photo taken 110 years later. Both trees have the same sharp bend in their trunks! It appears to be the very same tree !

"Hey boss, what do we do with these blocks?"

This is funny. I looked up the modern view of this scene. It looks like at some point in the past, the road crew lifted those cement blocks for crossing the gutter and "temporarily" placed them on the sidewalk.

Below is the same view from July of 2010.

Photo Taken On Meeting Street

Google maps shows this view to be on the Meeting St. side of the church. Broad is the cross street just past the pillared entrance.

Everything Is Still There

Just visited Charleston for the first time and I am in love with this city! So many of the old buildings are still there, including this church. I think any fan of Shorpy will love it too.
